Do it Your Way!  Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt

Raleigh, Cary & Holly Springs


Try not to drool on your keyboard, but it's time to flaunt your flavor at Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt.  With 16 decadent, fresh quality flavors to choose from, you can create endless combinations of the best yogurt in the Triangle.  Just like their flavor choices, the toppings bar is a place where you become the master of your Orange Leaf Yogurt dessert.  From fresh fruits and nuts to brownie bites and chocolate syrup, the possibilities are endless!


Orange Leaf is conveniently located in Raleigh on Lake Boone Trail, in Cary on Wrenn Drive, and in Holly Springs in the Holly Springs Towne Center.  You can expect to find the highest quality product, both within the yogurt as well as the toppings you will place on your froyo.  It is part of what they call the OL experience.  If you haven't experienced it, you should!


Orange Leaf is leading the 'hands-on revolution' that froyo fanatics love.  You create what you want, then weigh your treat and pay.  Prices are surprisingly less than most ice cream and yogurt shops. (Only 47 cents/oz.)


Orange Leaf strives to promote community and family by providing a great tasting, sensible, frozen dessert made just for you, by you, in an environment that is as visually uplifting as it is welcoming. What a mouthful! And what does it mean? It means that your senses will be wowed from the time you enter and hear their friendly clerk greet you as your eyes feast on the bright, clean and cheerful atmosphere with comfortable, modern seating. It means your taste buds will be wowed from the time the first sample flavor is handed to you until your spoon Orange Leaf Yogurt slides around the bowl one last time to get every possible bite of yogurt. It means that you are in control of your froyo creation from the time you pick up the cup placing it under the spigot until you place that delicious uniquely made delight on the scales before digging your orange spoon into it to enjoy.


Healthy Snack: OL understands the various dietary concerns that exist today.  This is why almost all of the froyo treats are gluten free.  Only the cookies & cream contain gluten (because of the Oreo cookies used to make them). Each day two of the 16 flavors will always be a no-sugar added and a lactose free flavor.  Add this app to your phone to keep up with the 16 flavors of the day.  There are 60 total, Orange Leafso you'll not want to miss a favorite.


Reserve to Party: The Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt experience is increased when you party at your OL store.  The Lake Boone location is equipped with a party room large enough to hold up to thirty people. You can close the doors to make it as private as you need, or swing them open to take full advantage of the OL experience. If you need to show a DVD, all you need to do is plug it into their DVD player and enjoy on their flat screen television. The room is reserved on a first come, first served basis. There's no charge for the use of the room!  They simply ask that you purchase a delicious cup of your favorite froyo.  If you are a business professional needing a place away from the office to hold a meeting, the party room may be just the place. The flat screen television may be used to show power-point presentations or the latest motivational DVD. Give them a call at 919-322-2724 to learn more or to book your party room today!


Ounces for A's: Bring in your report card and receive one free ounce of yogurt for every A earned. Also, take advantage of their Ounce Back Card. Register your card online and every $1 spent equals 1 reward point earned.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of  The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
