Alpine Chill Frozen Yogurt Shop

Alpine Chill frozen yogurt is a casual local place to “chill” and relax in a small Alpine neighborhood in San Diego County.  The store is located very close to freeway 8 on your way to a local casino in Viejas and a perfect destination to stop by to cool with a cup of a yummy frozen yogurt.

The owners of Alpine Chill had an idea to create a local community themed yogurt shop with an interior of an old ice cream store.  They also really wanted to incorporate some new hip materials and lighting elements into overall interior. Alpine Chill frozen yogurt store emerged as a comfortable interior for family conversations and interaction among local community.

The designer used cherry wood laminate on casework. Corian solid surface counter top is bright blue color. All selected hardware & fixtures are chrome or glass to create that old retro style ice cream feel. A large mirror menu board creates an illusion of a larger space.

Alpine Chill Frozen Yogurt store is a perfect example of a custom brand created to match the local neighborhood needs and style.  It has become the largest competitor with national yogurt shop chains around the area.
