Local businessman Christian Shomberg and his fiancee, Jamee Lowe, will open Churn & Burn, a new ice cream and coffee shop at 556 S. Oliver, on Tuesday.
The shop, which is filled with colorful relics and signs from the old Joyland, will specialize in ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, which results in a fast freeze and a dense, smoother product. Kansans who visit the Eisenhower Building at the Kansas State Fair each year might have tried liquid nitrogen ice cream before.
The shop will stock several pre-made specialty ice creams in flavors including avocado lime, Earl Grey Sriracha, strawberry balsamic, and popcorn.
Customers also can watch as their ice cream is made in front of them. They can have coffee and espresso drinks frozen into ice cream treats, or customers can choose made-to-order chocolate or vanilla ice cream with candies and nuts mixed in. The shop will also sell regular coffee drinks and is getting its beans from the local Reverie Coffee Roasters.
Hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1 to 8 p.m. Sundays. On opening day, Tuesday, the store will open at 1 p.m. For more information, call 316-425-7766.
