Seven years ago, we opened our first scoop shop on a quiet corner in Brooklyn. It’s mind-boggling to think about how much we’ve grown since those days, especially during a week like this one. On Thursday, October 11th, we’re opening our Los Feliz scoop shop—our first scoop shop on the West Coast. Tucked away in a lovely little neighborhood in sunny LA, we’ll be calling this bungalow “home.” California, here we come!

To mark this milestone, our founders, Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscuna, spent the summer traveling from New York to Los Angeles, churning new flavors inspired by the places they visited along the way. A family road trip with a sweet twist, we affectionately named their journey, “Churning Across America!” Follow our founders on their instagram, @astheicecreamchurns, to see their unfiltered ice cream antics!

Now that the time has finally come, we’re going all out! Our opening weekend will be sprinkled with party festivities, plenty of freebies and free ice cream—including our brand new Los Feliz shop-specific flavor, Beneath Las Estrellas.
Inspired by the beauty and the community of Los Feliz, Beneath Las Estrellas is an horchata ice cream with Milky Way swirls of dulce de leche and star-studded skies of white chocolate pearls.

Check out our plans below...and plan your weekend accordingly. We’d love to see you there.
What to expect opening weekend:
Thursday, October 11th at 3pm
We’re celebrating opening day with free Ample Hills swag and free ice cream. Our LA opening is going to be a big moment in ice cream history; it's only right that we celebrate with a day of nonstop giveaways.
Friday, October 12th through Sunday, October 14th, beginning at 12pm
Friday through Sunday, the first 100 scoops of the day will be free. Get there early to beat the line. But if you don't make it in time for a free scoop, don't worry. All weekend long, all flights will be 50% off! At just six dollars for six different scoops, our flights make a tempting sampler platter perfect for sharing...or indulging. (We don't judge.)
Six dollars for six scoops!
A small, family business, every day, our founders juggle the responsibilities of running Ample Hills Creamery and raising two kids. Thankfully, we are surrounded by positive people who aren't afraid to lend a hand. Opening our first scoop shop on the West Coast is a huge accomplishment, made possible only by the endless support of our customers, the hard work of our Amployees and a little help from our friends. Thank you. Is the West Coast the best coast? We don't like taking sides. But we'll say this: we can't believe how lucky we are! We hope to see you there.
