EaterWire: Cyrus Gets New PR, Yogen Fruz Location Revealed, Starbucks' Secret Out?

HEALDSBURG/PR LAND—Our little Cyrus is growing up so quickly. Fresh off a James Beard nomination for best regional chef, Douglas Keane and Cyrus have signed on with Bullfrog & Baum, the public relations agency biggie from New York, where they work with industry heavies like Bobby Flay, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Joel Rubuchon. Via ties in Vegas, they also occasionally speak for Hubert Keller and Michael Mina. Might Keane follow in their footsteps? [EaterWire Inbox]

EMBARCADERO CENTER—Last Thursday brought news of Yogen Fruz, a new (Canadian) frozen yogurt franchise that tapped San Francisco as one of its first American markets to, uh, conquer. As a commenter noted, the first location will be located in Three Embarcadero Center, and according to the Canadian froyoers, they plan to open 35 Bay Area locations in the next five years.

'BUCKSWIRE—BusinessWeek thinks it has the lowdown on tomorrow's mysterious Starbucks promotion: "Starbucks Corp. will start serving up a new "everyday" brew Tuesday, hoping the signature blend will help revive slumping sales in its crucial U.S. market. To celebrate the launch, it will give away free 8 oz. cups of Pike Place Roast -- named after its first store in Seattle's famed public market -- at more than 7,000 U.S. stores from 9 to 9:30 a.m. PDT (12 to 12:30 p.m. EDT)." That's it? [BW]
