Breaking News!!!

West Asheville Ice Cream? Yes!!!

The Hop Ice Cream Cafe is dead excited to announce that we will be opening up a second location, "The Hop West", on Haywood Road in West Asheville. We have been contemplating our next move for a while now and the opportunity to become a part of the West AVL business community has now opened up to us. You can mark the date down for October 15, 2010 for our Grand Opening at the former Two Spoons Ice Cream location at 721 Haywood Rd. We will be open from 1-11pm and have live music, lots of friends, familiar faces, and free kiddie scoops of ice cream for everyone!

Ashley and I would like to express how supportive we are of Asheville as a whole, and thrilled to be a part of a close knit business community on the westside of town where we reside. We will continue to support the many events and benefits in the WNC area, using the The Hop West to reach out even more. Thank you to everyone who has shown us such inspiring support over these last couple of years. We look forward to building our relations with our many friends online and face to face. West Asheville... Here we come!!!

Thank you again, Asheville!!!

  1. Nice. That's two blocks away from my house y'all.

  2. That is awesome! The new location will be slightly closer to my house.

    I hope your business grows enough that there will be a South Asheville location someday!

  3. OH YEAH!! That's great! Congrats to you both and congrats to US!

  4. Thanks, everybody!!! Can't wait to scoop for y'all on the Westside!

  5. exciting times... thanks for everything you do in the community... not to mention the awesome ice cream!

  6. Hooray! Can't wait! (The drive up Merrimon was just too long and fraught with potential disaster!)
