Last Orange Leaf in Springfield is closing

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-- It's a bittersweet end for Springfield's franchise of a frozen yogurt chain Orange Leaf.

On Friday, Orange leaf on E. Republic Road will close. Now fans of the frozen yogurt favorite will have to travel to Joplin to get their fix.

Orange leaf franchise owner Curt Bartell made a Facebook post announcing the closing of the last Springfield locations. He said it was due to issues with other unrelated business in their portfolio. Bartell also thanked the community for the outpouring of support for the business.

Bartell is seeking a buyer, and says any offer will be considered.
