The frozen yogurt shop in the Sherman Plaza development in downtown Evanston will reopen later this month with a new name and new owner.

The storefront at 809 Davis that until earlier this year was a Red Mango franchise will reopen as a Tutti Frutti franchise instead.

New owner Robert Chong, who owns two other Chicago-area Tutti Frutti shops, tells the Daily Northwestern the shop will offer 40 to 50 different toppings for its frozen yogurt.

But Protein Bar, which was announced last summer as a new tenant for the Sherman Plaza space at 1622 Sherman Ave. vacated by Lululemon Athletica won’t be arriving in Evanston after all.

A city official says the restaurant failed to reach agreement with Lululemon on terms of a sublease for the space.

    I’ve been waiting for Protein Bar to open! It would have been very convenient right outside of the gym and a healthy alternative to the other fast food establishments in the downtown area.
