Restaurateurs are hoping more frozen yogurt is what residents and workers in Schaumburg have been looking for because that's what they're getting in two new eateries on the way.
Menchies and Yogurtland were among four new businesses to win the green light Tuesday night from Schaumburg trustees.
Menchies, which plans to offer a variety of frozen yogurts and toppings, will be located in a 2,100-square-foot space just west of Bonefish Grill in Town Square at the southwest corner of Schaumburg and Roselle roads.
Yogurtland, which will boast from 12 to 14 flavors of frozen yogurt and 30 different toppings, will be located in a 1,205-square-foot space in Scharrington Square at Schaumburg and Barrington roads.
Both frozen yogurt restaurants received their special use permits to operate.
Trustees also recommended the Cook County Board's approval of a Class 6B tax incentive for Nissin Cap to occupy and renovate a long-vacant 20,070-square-foot building at 1110 Remington Road in the Schaumburg Industrial Park.
The company is planning to use the site for the warehousing and distribution of promotional products, and will staff it with six employees.
Cook County's Class 6B incentive program is aimed at keeping the county competitive in attracting industrial, manufacturing and warehouse businesses.
The program works by lowering the level of assessment on a property from 25 percent to 10 percent for 10 years, reducing property taxes by approximately half during that period. The level of assessment then gradually rises during the 11th and 12th years before returning to normal.
Only industrial properties that have been on the market for sale or lease for two years or more are eligible. Trustees Tuesday also leased a room at the village-owned Schaumburg Regional Airport on Irving Park Road to Avel Aviation Inc. and approved its application to operate a flight school.
