Anyone have more info on Kashrus plan for Cold Stone?

http://www.jewishillini.org/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/3203346/jewish/Kosher-in-Champaign-Urbana.htm

I don't know about the IL location, however the Pittsburgh, PA location was Kosher for about one year (dairy, non-CY) and they did not see the value so they are no longer certified Kosher.
