Melissa Milligan just happened to stop in our mill house café and enjoyed her time so much that she asked if she could write an article about the shop. A-OK with us! Please read what she wrote about our neck of the woods:

#StillServing during Covid-19!

Entercom and Heidi Aiken of Radio B93.7 featured restaurants that are #stillserving during these challenging times…and highlighted our very own Yum-Yum! Please take a look at the link and enjoy their great write-up about our little shop. And why not listen to B93.7 while reading, too? Many-many thanks to all!

#1 on TripAdvisor!

It sure has made us smile to discover that the Yum-Yum has been rated #1 out of 19 eating establishments in Pelzer, SC on the world’s largest travel site!  Many-many thanks to the folks who have stopped in, enjoyed what we offer, and then taken the time to write such kind words about their experience.  Please come back and let us treat you again!

Proclamation from Greenville County Council!

We received this for being the “spark to revitalize the community,” helping “foster economic growth,” and building “pride and confidence.”  To us, though, it is a feather in the cap of so many in Southern Greenville County who have enhanced our idea with their involvement.  We are sincerely grateful.

2014 Commercial Revitalization Award!

The Yum-Yum was nominated…then won…this recognition from the Greater Greenville Association of Realtors!  It is annually given to a business that has extensively renovated a building – but more importantly, has perked up a community.  We consider this an award to the Fork Shoals community as much as to the shop.  Many thanks to many folks for this honor!

13th Best Ice Cream Shop in South Carolina!

This surprise award came to us from “Only in Your State” and we can’t thank them enough!  It encourages us to continue working diligently to make ALL the offerings at the shop extra yum-yummy….from lunches & baked goods to coffees & snacks, too!  Ah, lucky 13!
