Pinkberry, the low-fat Korean frozen yoghurt concept known in the US as "crackberry" for its apparently addictive qualities, has reportedly appointed property advisers to seek sites in the UK. The company, which has been rumoured to be looking to open in the UK for the last four years, is thought to have appointed Harper Dennis Hobbs to seek sites in London and around the country. Canary Wharf has previously been mooted as a possible first destination for the chain. Earlier this year, the company announced plans to open in up to 17 new international markets by the end of this year. The chain, which currently operates 122 sites across eight countries, is expected to add 30 new international sites by the end of 2011. The company, which is led by chief executive Ron Graves, opened its first site in Russia in March, with further sites opened in Kuwait and Peru in May. The group is also expected to open franchise locations in Turkey, the Philippines, Canada and Morocco, as well as in more nations in the Middle East, this year. Starbucks president and chief executive Howard Schultz sits on Pinkberry’s board.
