Scoop N Scootery Ice Cream Delivery Opening Brick-and-Mortar Spot in Arlington
It looks like the people behind a Somerville-based mobile ice cream delivery and catering business will be opening a permanent shop in the local area.
Eater Boston is reporting (via the company's Facebook page) that Scoop N Scootery Ice Cream Delivery is currently working on signing a lease for a brick-and-mortar location and its business is closed for the time being while they finalize the deal. At this point in time, Founder Austin Crittenden is not yet ready to announce where exactly the shop will be, but it can probably be assumed that their signature ice cream sundaes will be offered once the store becomes reality.
[January 26, 2016 update: A new article from Eater Boston states that the brick-and-mortar location for Scoop N Scootery will be at 112 Mass. Ave. in East Arlington, and that it could be opening as early as later this week. The post also mentions that the business will continue to deliver treats to those within its existing radius.]
[February 4, 2016 update: A Facebook post from Scoop N Scootery indicates that its opening has been delayed, with the place saying that they "hit a major snag in our inspection today. Exposed piping may look awesome but it's a big no no for the health department. So another project and postponed opening for the Scootery team."]
[February 9, 2016 update: A new Facebook post from Scoop N Scootery says that the piping is just about done and the shop should open soon, though no specific date has been given, with the post also saying that "Progress is being made!! Kinda"]
[March 4, 2016 update: Eater Boston mentions that Scoop N Scootery's shop in Arlington is now open, with hours being 3:00 PM to 2:00 AM Tuesday through Sunday.]
According to an earlier article in Boston Magazine, Scoop N Scootery Ice Cream Delivery got its start in 2012 when Crittenden was a student at Tufts University; the company was put on hold a few months later before starting up again last year.
