The Scoop N Scootery Is Opening in the Former Abbott's Frozen Custard Space in Brighton

It looks like an ice cream delivery company with two shops in the Boston area is opening a third, with this one taking over the space where a location of a small chain of frozen custard shops had been until closing last June.

According to a source, The Scoop N Scootery is moving into the former Abbott's Frozen Custard space in Brighton Center, with a photo showing a sign up for the upcoming shop. A check on Yelp seems to confirm this, showing that a page is now up for the Washington Street location of The Scoop N Scootery, though the website for the business only shows its existing locations in East Arlington and Allston.

The Scoop N Scootery, which started out as a Somerville-based mobile ice cream delivery and catering business, opened its first shop on Mass. Ave. in East Arlington in 2016, with its second outlet on Linden Street in Allston opening earlier this year.

Locations of Abbott's Frozen Custard (which is based in Rochester, NY) remain open in Arlington, Lexington, and Needham, with another on the way to Arlington Heights as well.

The address for the upcoming location of The Scoop N Scootery in Brighton Center is 360 Washington Street, Brighton, MA, 02135. The website for the company can be found at
