Police say Benjamin Warren, 18 and Louis Correra, 17, drove by and fired several plastic bullets into the crowd outside the Orange Leaf.
Five people were hit, but none were seriously hurt.
The owner says Warren had been fired from his job at the frozen yogurt shop a few months ago, suggesting that may have been the motive.
Warren and Correra were arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Both pleaded not guilty in court on Thursday. The judge ordered them to home confinement with electronic monitoring. They are allowed to leave for work and school.
Warren and Correra have also been ordered to surrender any other weapons and stay away from the Orange leaf and the victims.
