Lick Honest Ice Creams is opening its second Austin location on Burnet Road on Wednesday, July 22 and is inviting the public to celebrate its grand opening with a free scoop from 7 to 10 pm. The shop’s hours will be the same as its South Lamar location:12:30 pm to 10 pm Sunday through Thursday and 12:30 to 11:30 pm Friday and Saturday.
“We’re honestly beyond ecstatic to be opening this shop! It’s been over two years in the making but I don’t think we could have found a better location,” says Sobotik. “This shop will serve all the same flavors as our other shops, which are always made completely from scratch in our kitchen with the freshest local ingredients.”
The space is located at the renovated 6555 Burnet Road shopping center, managed by Austin’s Endeavor Real Estate Group. Bufalina and Barley Swine will join Lick as tenants of the center later this year.
“We’re so excited that we will now be able to serve all of our loyal customers up North that have been making the journey south for almost four years and introduce ourselves to new friends. This shop is surrounded by amazing neighborhoods, full of awesome Austinites and we’re just happy to be joining this community.”
At 1,125 square feet, the new location is larger than Lick’s flagship location’s 780 square foot space. “We’ll be able to more comfortably accommodate our customers at this location which makes us very happy,” says Sobotik. “It has the same feel as our South Lamar and Pearl shops but with a few new touches and finishes that give it it’s own personality. It’s also has a good amount of parking.”
This will be Lick’s third retail location. Lick’s flagship location is on 2032 South Lamar Boulevard in Austin and its second location is on 312 Pearl Parkway #2101 in San Antonio. Currently, Lick’s ice cream truck has been serving at the Burnet Road locationThursday through Sunday. Details on the truck’s future whereabouts will be shared on Lick’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pages/Lick-Ice-Creams.
