|Izzy's Minneapolis factory opens today|
After months of planning, building, and fighting opposition from area residents
, Izzy's Ice Cream's new Minneapolis factory and retail shop near the Guthrie (1100 2nd St. S.) is set to open today, reports the Downtown Journal.
Owners Lara Hammel and Jeff Sommers say they intend today to be a very soft opening and that there is still a lot of work to be done before the space is fully finished. The pair are already well into onsite production but for now have modest seating and two freezers full of ice cream to sell by the scoop.
Some exciting plans are on the horizon though, including group tours; outdoor seating; a room where visitors can create their own flavors; and a possible rooftop patio overlooking the Stone Arch Bridge. So what will this expansion mean for the original Izzy's location?
