An Australia-based yogurt shop that has evolved into a global phenomenon is expanding into Fort Bend County. 

Yomie’s Rice X Yogurt, 3412 State Highway 6 Unit L, will soon be adding a Sugar Land location at The Shops at Williams Trace, according to a filing with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts for a sales tax permit that is set to go into effect April 1. 

Yomie’s is known for its oat-based and rice-based yogurts made with a variety of fruits, as well as smoothies and teas. 

There are already several Asian eateries in the shopping center, which is anchored by Jusgo Supermarket and 99 Ranch Market. Dessert purveyors Somi Somi and Beard Papa’s, Jang Guem Tofu & BBQ and discount store Daiso also operate in the retail development.  

The Shops at Williams Trace are owned by Whitestone Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). An email from the Star sent Friday and calls placed Monday to the leasing agents responsible for the property were not returned. 

An email sent from The Star last Friday to Yomie’s asking for more information about the Sugar Land location was not returned.
