Sweet! Earnest Ice Cream To Launch New Store & Commissary Off Clark Dr.

IMG_8924

by Andrew Morrison | Sundae lovers will be stoked to hear that the good folks behind Earnest Ice Cream ar in the process of building a brand new, 5,217 sqft facility at 1485 Frances Street. The location – the light industrial netherworld between Commercial Drive and Strathcona – might seem a bit of an odd one at first glance, but it fits the company’s needs for commissary space and there’s no shortage of people in the surrounding neighbourhoods who are totally down for good ice cream. Of course, just 300 sqft of the new space will be dedicated to retail pint sales and scoop/sundae service, with the remainder devoted to ice cream production and meeting increasing wholesale demand. So it might get tight. Opening day is slated for some point in June. Bonus: this is just around the corner from Timbertrain Coffee’s new Depot Cafe, which is also opening soon. I snuck a peek last week…
