Roanoke is The Unique Dining Capital of Texas and So Much More!

Roanoke Convention & Visitor Center

Last year, the Texas State Legislature awarded Roanoke, Texas with the title of “Unique Dining Capital of Texas.” You may not have heard much about it yet, but stay tuned. The renovation of historic downtown Oak Street, which began in January of 2009, should come to completion in April of this year – just a few months away. To celebrate the city’s designation and construction completion, Roanoke has planned Unique Week, a one-week celebration in April that will include music, food, fun, and best of all – community!

Located near Wal-Mart in Roanoke, Yogurt Story is the second location, a franchise, of the original Denton-based frozen yogurt shop. Owners of the new location, Ken and Cindy Hartman were at the store yesterday to  show me the fun and unique process of creating a yogurt masterpiece.

Yogurt Story is the perfect destination for after the big game, on the way to the mall, or to celebrate a personal victory – like your son’s A+ on his math test or your wife’s recent promotion…or the fact that the laundry is finally finished, folded, and put away. Whether you go alone or with a minivan full of soccer players, you’ll feel welcome and satisfied after your visit to Yogurt Story in Roanoke, Tx. Continue reading
