Arrow Yum Yum Shop Closing - Up For Sale!

Yum Yum Shop Closing - Up For Sale!

One of the members of the family that owns the Yum Yum Shop told us today that this is their last weekend of business and it is in fact up for sale. It has been family owned and operated since 1948. This one fellow has been running the place by himself with some help from his wife when she is not working as a nurse. He is a part time firefighter and has decided to make this a full time profession. There is much interest in the waterfront property, but not so much interest in purchasing of a bakery.

Paul and I wish them well. It's sad to see a local businesses close after 68 years.

Sorry to see it go. I have fond memories of the Yum Yum Shop when it was across the street. Tiny place. We would wait in line for fresh- from- the- oven White Mountain bread every time we came in to town from the island. One loaf to eat right away, another loaf to take home. My great aunt would treat us to a frosted gingerbread man once in a while. Loved the hermit bars too.

Default Yum Yum

Some of my fondest memories are trips to the Yum Yum for raspberry turnovers! We spent vacations at Edward' on Wentworth. Every Wednesday there was a cookout at the beach and a buffet supper on Sundays. Jelly doughnuts from Yum Yum was the best part of it for us kids! Good luck to the family.

That was the last thing I had there on my final visit in August. The property has actually been for sale for a while and they announced the closing in the spring before they opened for the season. In fact they weren't open Memorial Day weekend this year. They will be greatly missed.

I understand the business is not for sale, just the real estate. I think the business could be bought, but for more than the sale price of the land and building.

True. $1.1M only for the property, which is pretty great. 24' of water frontage that has outside seating for the 44 seat restaurant, two other zoned businesses. The ice cream stand and the bakery area.

So sad to see them go, but the family members that started the business had different dreams than the children/grandchildren.

Unhappy Yum Yum Shop closing

I frequented the Yum Yum Shop back in 1958-60 when I was a dorm student at Brewster. Then in the late 60's as a summer visitor, and occasionally since then. Sad to see it go.

It's a much, much better location.

But I assume they don't have the wherewithal, i.e., finances and staff, because it probably would have already happened if it were going to happen. Yum Yum has been up for sale for several months (previous thread under Restaurants:
http://www.winnipesaukee.com/forums/...ad.php?t=20581 ). The original listing did include the equipment; they've dropped the price now and made equipment purchase optional, which I think was wise.

Anything over $600,000 for that location, unless you are in it for a hobby and do not need a profit, is not economical. The only reason why the Yum Yum Shop was able to survive a 14 week season is that they owned the property and presumably had no mortgage.

I am very sad to see the Yum Yum shop go and also wonder why. It could be a few things. It might be that even if they did own the property mortgage free, they had taxes to pay, higher wages and other expenses. I also don't think the products were as good as they used to be. Still good but not quite like they were. I paid $14.60 for a dozen donuts and I think that is quite high. ( The next time I paid 13.60.) I don't think the people working there knew the prices because that was not the first time that happened to me.) Not saying they didn't need to charge it to cover expenses but just saying maybe it was a vicious circle. You need a huge volume to cover expenses. Or maybe they just got tired of doing it. Still it seems if it was lucrative, the family would have kept it. All guesses----

Good guesses. My cousin and her husband have had a fishing tackle store in Pennsylvania for many years. They were not getting rich but made a living because they own the building free and clear. Last year her husband died and cousin wants to sell the business but there is no way anyone could afford to buy the building and the business and the inventory and come close to paying for it so she's stuck. Probably have sell or lease the building to some other type business that's more profitable.

Went by here yesterday and noticed the absence of "For Sale" sign. No visible signs of any changes/renovation going on. Any news from anyone ?

Bakery that used to be next door to the meat market in the back section of Wolfeboro is renting the space and will be offering their brand of baked goods downtown. Hopefully they will have something better than white bread style donuts and white bread looking pies. But then it is NH so we will have to wait and see.

Perhaps you could enlighten the hoi polloi and let us know what dining establishments in the Lakes Region, if any, meet your obvious high standards. Maybe a few for breakfast, lunch, dinner and ice cream? It would also help if you could elucidate us on how we can strive to become as knowledgeable in these matters as you are.

No need to "wait and see" if you've been to their previous location or even just seen their websites, which one would think you would have since you're so contemptuous of white bread type baked goods, but apparently you'd rather feel deprived.

The husband-and-wife team of La Boca have been creating fabulous bread, scones, all manner of desserts, and a few other delicacies (like garlic parsley flavored butter) for some years.

Have not found any restaurants in the Lakes Region that come close to NYC standards but there are a number of passible places as one can not go to NYC for less than $1000 and have a decent weekend.

Tons of good places for breakfast as breakfast is the NH meal of choice. But nothing like Norma's in the Hotel Meridian in NYC and I have yet to find a place in the Lakes Region where I can get a decent snowy Nova on a toasted B.

Lunch I generally have breakfast as most of the lunch places never offer a real deli sandwich on real Jewish Rye as that is not found in NH. Nor can you get a real Kaiser Roll just the Bulky which is a sad rendition.
Dinner - Nary a real Chinese Hunan style place, Pizza, The Bayside Grill in Wolfeboro has the best in that area. Because there are no 24 hour diners in the area finding a sandwich after 2-3 pm is a real problem. Roast Beef is Dargin Park in Boston. No Fondue restaurants in the area. No real French restaurants. Mis en Place is not one of them.
Ice Cream - Bailey's Bubble for selection quality and price.

As for knowledge all one has to do is travel outside of NH to learn that there is a real food world out there. NH has improved a bit with the coming of Panera and a few of the Canoe type places but over my 60 years experience with the state it sure is a slow slog.

I will admit not having been in to see their offering in the last several years as when I did go in they had no Kaiser rolls, Hard crust Jewish Rye etc. and they said they did not get a call for that type of bread. Plus most times I went by they were closed. Sort of like a lot of the Wolfeboro businesses open when the owners wishes closed when they get bored. I will stop by when they open in the former Yum Yum shop location. It certainly is the best spot in town for a bakery.

Well as a NH native.... you can keep NYC for starters and I for one would gladly save the expense of going to that cesspool and enjoy oh I don't know how about a huge pile of fried clams from Pop's. In fact they cannot open soon enough!

I don't usually chime in but Acrossamerica perked me up! I live just north of NYC and dine quite often at many of their finer restaurants and I've eaten at many hot spots from Paris to Rome to Barcelona etc. I am a big time foodie and was in the business when younger. That being said my family has had a place in Moultonboro for 65 years or so and I love dining around the lake. There are twenty great reastaurants for breakfast in NYC and none are as enjoyable as the Village Kitchen. I have had Asian fusion meals at Nobu in NYC for $600 per couple, and I can get a more enjoyable meal at Lemon Grass. I can go on Canoe, Corner House, they all put out a consistently good meal that matches anything I get in the tri state area. Enjoy what you have here, life is too short to be always looking to make something better that isn't broken.

Default Yum Yum Shop Closing - Up For Sale!

Across America your posts and superiority complex for NYC gives other New Yorkers like my self who thoroughly enjoy both regions and I actually plan on retiring here a bad name. I have been to dozens of establishments in both areas and there are good and bad in both and NYC is extremely overpriced even with the high rent and cost of doing business there.

You all can relax. No one is going to take away your favorite restaurants here in the Lakes Region IF you frequent them more than what I read from most posters. The special anniversary crowd will not do it for the eateries. Also, I like a much more formal atmosphere when I dine and I understand that is not the NH way. Jeans plaid shirts or golf shirts and Nikes are fine at Pop's and the village kitchen (Solid food in the comfort food zone) but not for me when I want an upscale experience. Food is not just the food It is the entire experience and I find obtaining that in NH difficult. But hey to each his own and no sense getting a sweat up over one poster. I surely do not have that level of power.

Yeah, your upscale... about as upscale as hemmoroid cream!

If you hate NH so much please leave as there are many here who enjoy it as it is, including me!

Go eat your Mortons Steak with a side of piss and garbage and enjoy! I'll take the village kitchen and O's and whoever else tries hard to serve good food in the lakes region, make it or break it any day!

Of your 225 posts on this forum never once have you ever thanked a single poster on this forum. All you do is mock people and mock whatever they post, especially when it comes to restaurant Reviews or food in the area. You put yourself up on some kind of pedestal which only makes it easier to see up your skirt!

Here is a response from a NH native, whose parents were also NH natives, since you seem to be fixated on that status, among others.

Sorry, it is not censorship and your liberal/conservative baiting gets you nowhere. People are simply pointing out what you are.

Like I said before in response to one of Acrossamerica’s condescending posts:

Supercilious.

Not to be THAT guy, but the whole upscale food and wine (and clothing, jewelry, etc.) game--to me--is a giant scam to create a faux hierarchy. "Acquired taste" and "fashion" is code for "put up with discomfort because then you'll be cool."

Give me a hot cocoa over a high-end coffee, a cold soda over a glass of wine, and a grilled steak over fois gras any single goddam day of the week.

Now, where's those white flour pies and donuts because I love me some pastry!

Thank you for making my case. Your post totally exemplifies the level of taste and sophistication generally found in the Lakes Region. And with that I bid you all a fond farewell. Enjoy the summer.

Goodbye and, as they used to say in math class, with respect to your last post and those which preceded it and the various responses to those posts, QED.

Who told you that, they are not moving there. I know where they are moving to but it will do you good to research where they are actually moving to.

Well now, looks like the "We all think alike posse" successfully drove off someone whose ideas didn't match their own.

Sorry, I too was misled by Acrossamerica's post, checked La Boca's Facebook, saw a post by someone mentioning move to Yum Yum but didn't scroll down far enough to see La Boca's own reply or big announcement:

I respectfully disagree. AA was mean and insulting in his meaningless (NYC vs NH) comparisons. Though there might have been a bit too much acid in some responses, their primary thrust was enforcing a decent environment for the forum.

I completely agree. Nothing wrong at all with opposing positions and opinions on issues related to the lake or otherwise but all responses should be respect and AA was down right nasty and offensive on many occasions.

We need to get over this, the summer hasn't even started yet. Too early for the bickering.
