A local frozen yogurt shop is expanding to the lakeshore.

Pump House, which opened its first shop in Grand Rapids in 2012, opened a second shop last week in downtown Grand Haven, at 20 N. Harbor Drive.

Pump House features 100 toppings and 14 yogurt-pumping stations.

“Not just for yogurt”

Karen Avery, Pump House owner, hopes to offer soups and sandwiches, as well as a baked-goods counter that offers homemade doughnuts, pastries and other desserts.

She added that she hopes to add other amenities at the shop, including a vintage photo booth, a soda fountain and an area for outdoor seating.

“Pump House wants to be a place that Grand Haven residents can visit year around and not just for yogurt,” Avery said. “We are creating a performance area that will showcase local talent.”

“Beach shack”

Pump House Grand Haven is nestled in a one story, 3,300-square-foott building, where Wirick Office Products was formerly housed.

The space has undergone renovations by Dan Vos Construction in Ada to turn it into a “vintage beach shack theme,” Avery said.

“For many people, Pump House, just like Grand Haven, is all about fun, especially in the summer,” Avery said. “We want to create a casual setting that mimics a fun, beach-front establishment.”

Hiring

Avery said she expects to hire about 18 part-time staff for the shop.

Hours

The shop’s hours will run from noon to midnight, seven days a week, although the hours are expected to change seasonally.
