New Location Of Earnest Ice Cream To Launch June 15th On Frances Street

IMG_1436

by Andrew Morrison | I was not a little thrilled yesterday to see ice cream finally being made at the new Earnest Ice Cream production facility. Owners Ben Ernst and Erica Bernardi were kind enough to show me around the huge space that is soon to open – complete with retail frontage – at 1485 Frances Street in East Van (just east of Clark and south of E. Hastings). If this is the first time you’re getting wind of the place, here’s what I wrote about it back in March:

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 need 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.

The plan is to open for friends and family in one week from today (June 14) and then launch to the public the following day. Hours will be 12pm to 10pm, seven days a week. Take a look:
