Not a surprise to hear that Chik-Fil-A had a 100.

I knew Yogurt King was going to get nailed. Nasty place, they leave the "fixings" out all the time. It's just yuck!

Yogurt King might have closed. When my wife and I drove past there Saturday afternoon, the store was dark.

They're probably closed until they can be reinspected.
