Construction has begun on Swizzles frozen yogurt next to Petco at the Vinnin Square mall. The shop is now slated to open in mid-July, said owner Adam Kessner.

Adam Kessner liked a neighborhood frozen yogurt shop so much that he opened his own shop — with a twist — it was self-serve. Then he opened another Swizzles. And another.

They pay by the ounce, 59-cents per ounce. The cup sizes are 12-ounces and 16-ounces. The customer pulls the …
