Frozen Yogurt and a Movie Provide Relief from Heat

MT KISCO—It used to be ice cream was the go to treat to cool yourself off in the summertime heat, but now frozen yogurt has taken its place in Mt Kisco.

With a heat advisory issued for Westchester County until 9pm on Tuesday , Frannie’s Goodie Shop on East Main Street has been busy with customers coming in to cool off .

“Frozen yogurt is a great way to cool down,” owner of the café Frannie Albanese said.

Albanese has seen an increase in customers as temperatures remain high this summer and continue to climb. “The stores been picking up in the day because of the heat,” she said. “It’s getting warmer out so it’s only getting busier.”

Frannie's Goodie Shop is a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, where customers can chose from six soft-serve frozen yogurt flavors and dozens of different toppings.

Right next store to Frannie’s Goodie Shop is the Mt Kisco Movie Theater that offers another retreat for people trying to escape the heat.

The theater has gone back and forth between busy and slow days so far this summer, but expects to pull in more moviegoers as the heat increases and family friendly movies come out.

“It depends on what movies are playing, if they’re kid friendly were busier,” Assistant Manager Tiffany Chacon said.

With the seventh and final installment of “ Harry Potter ” coming out this week, Chacon is expecting lots of families to spend the day at the movies.

“We’ve already pre-sold a lot of tickets for the next week,” she said.

The heat advisory ends on July 12 at 9pm but temperatures are likely to remain in the mid-80s for the rest of the week.
