Bubble Tea Comes to Urbana

Yo Bubble, offering non-fat frozen yogurt and bubble tea, opened last month at 3327 Worthington Boulevard.

The store, owned by Janet Wu of Germantown and Tina Trinh of Urbana, is open Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 8 p.m.

Customers can help themselves to self-serve frozen yogurt in a variety of flavors as well as tons of toppings, from fruits, candies and nuts to sprinkles and graham crackers. Yo Bubble’s signature drink is bubble tea with flavors including: strawberry, passion fruit, honeydew, mango, green apple, peach and kiwi.

“After searching the area, we found that there were no yogurt places. They were only in D.C. and Montgomery Mall. Not in Frederick,” Wu said of the decision to open in Urbana.

Yo Bubble has five other employees. For more information about Yo Bubble including nutritional content, visit
