A new cold dessert shop concept called Snow Dragon Shavery is planning to open soon in the former Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt space at 809 Davis St. in the Sherman Plaza development in downtown Evanston.

The Tutti Frutti self-serve frozen yogurt franchise opened there in mid 2014, but closed a few months ago. Before that, the space had been occupied by a Red Mango a counter-service frozen yogurt shop franchise since about 2008.

“It’s not ice cream, it’s not yogurt, it’s snow!” says Snow Dragon’s website of its shaved ice desserts.


While the two previous businesses were part of much larger chains, Snow Dragon has just one other shop, at 2618 N. Clark St. in Chicago, and it’s getting mostly favorable reviews on sites lilke Yelp.
