Yung tells me Sweet Republic will be making a second home for itself at 6054 North 16th Street, on the west side of 16th just north of Bethany Home Road (in the strip mall next to Asahi Bakery).

"Sweet Republic has been in Scottsdale for over five-and-a-half years, so we're excited to finally be closer to our Phoenix customers," says Yung. "We're currently expanding our Scottsdale location to increase production space and freezer storage so that we can supply the new Phoenix location and our growing list of wholesale customers as well as our outlet at Sky Harbor Terminal 4."

Yung says she's planning on opening the Phoenix location of Sweet Republic in spring of next year. The Sweet Republic at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport's Terminal 4 is expected to open by early 2014.
