Sweet Frog opening at Kings Dominion

Richmond-based Sweet Frog will open a self-serve frozen yogurt location at Kings Dominion this spring.

Sweet Frog has been expanding rapidly of late, including into several locations in the Fredericksburg area. The company now operates nearly 200 stores; this will be its first at an amusement park.

The Kings Dominion store will be in the park's Planet Snoopy area, which is now undergoing a multi-million-dollar addition.

Kings Dominion, which is located off Interstate 95 in Hanover County near the Caroline County line, plans to hire 4,000 seasonal workers this year and is now accepting applications.
