Fruttela has shuttered its Old Fourth Ward doors, Atlanta Magazine first reported. The Frozen yogurt shop made the announcement in a Facebook post this week.

“Today is the day…come get your last hoorah of Fruttela Frozen Yogurt before we close our doors,” according to the post.

But the space, at 701 Highland Ave NE, won’t sit dark long.

Craft ice cream maker Cora Cotrim announced Tuesday on Queen of Cream‘s Facebook page plans to open the brand’s first brick-and-mortar store in the space.

“We love the Inman Park/04W neighborhood and cannot wait to be a part of it,” according to the post.

“Stay posted for an opening date…”

In addition to craft ice cream, Queen of Cream will serve up desserts like cookies and pies, as well as coffee. Before securing a physical parlor, Cotrim has been slinging her homemade ice creams out of carts throughout the city’s farmer’s markets and festivals.

Queen of Cream is expected to replace Fruttela late summer 2015.
