Carvel Ice Cream Is Opening at South Station in Boston

Three years ago, we reported that a chain of ice cream shops was going to be returning to the Boston area, and now we have learned that its first location will be coming to the heart of the city this week.

Eater Boston is reporting that Carvel opens at South Station this Thursday (June 12), with this being the start of an expansion that will include both full-sized and express locations in the Boston area and elsewhere in the state. The South Station location of Carvel is being run by the franchise owner of the Auntie Anne's shop at South Station, with the ice cream shop being integrated within the pretzel place, according to a release on the Business Wire site.

Atlanta-based Carvel, which first started out in 1934, used to have a handful of locations in the local area, including in Brockton, Malden, and Woburn. Currently, the only places in Massachusetts that serve Carvel ice cream are locations of Moe's Southwest Grill in Waltham and Shrewsbury, based on information from the Carvel site.
