College Hill Creamery will open next month at 3700 E Douglas, in the spot in Clifton Square that formerly housed Mend Physio Therapy.
The ice cream shop will serve 24 flavors of ice cream and is owned by College Hill resident Caleb Shannon. He has a different day job and his hired a manager to run the day-to-day of the business, which will specialize in hand-dipped cones fitted with giant malt balls in the bottom to prevent leaks.
The shop will open at noon on June 1.
Shannon got the idea to open the shop when he noticed that College Hill was lacking in ice cream options.
“My niece and nephew were in town about six months ago, and we couldn’t find anything in that area other than chain places,” he said. “We decided that College Hill is that that kind of neighborhood, with the parks and a pool, that would really be able to use more of a local ice cream store.”
Single scoop cones will be about $2.50 The store also will make ice cream sandwiches to order.
It’ll be open from noon to 8 p.m. daily.
