FLOYDADA—With summer officially around the corner, residents will now be able to enjoy the warm weather with a delicious icy treat provided by “The Scoop.”
Customers can choose from a variety of five different ice cream flavors including chocolate and vanilla. However, ice cream isn’t the only thing on their menu. Customers can also enjoy edible cookie dough which comes in five different flavors and quench their thirst with a refreshing daily homemade style cherry or strawberry lemonade.
The owner of this new business is 19-year-old Kylie Ricketts, daughter of Tony and Pam Ricketts.
When asked why she chose to invest into this new shop Ricketts answered with, “I wanted to do something for my community, especially during the coronavirus since everything is kind of shutdown.”
“Everyone’s spirit is kind of down so I thought this would be a good way to lift everyone’s spirit and give them something to look forward to,” said Ricketts. And it will also help out with my college. This is a summer job I can manage every summer when I come home.”
Ricketts is a full-time student at West Texas A&M University so “The Scoop” will only be open during the summer months of May and close around August.
Ricketts plans to buy ice cream from a wholesaler who makes homemade ice cream. “It would not be easy enough for us to make ice cream every day, we just don’t have those tools” says Ricketts.
“The Scoop” will officially open on Saturday, May 16 from 2-8 p.m. and will be open Monday – Saturday and is located at 1234 South Ralls Highway.
Ricketts will even have a drive thru available for customers to place their order. For more updates be sure to follow “The Scoop Floydada” on Facebook to keep up with specials and giveaways.
Thank you in advance Kylie Ricketts for satisfying all our sweet tooth cravings! The community is looking forward to a sweet and delicious summer.
