Ice cream chain Baskin-Robbins will open a location in Lawrence on Wednesday.
The store is at 1626 W. 23rd St., the northeast corner of 23rd Street and Ousdahl Road in Lawrence.
The local store is owned by franchisee Purav Patel, according to a news release from the company. It employs six team members and its hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
The store will have traditional ice cream flavors as well as ice cream cakes, toppings, chocolate-dipped bananas, ice cream bars, smoothie bars, waffle cones and more, according to the release.
The menu also includes “Polar Pizza Ice Cream Treat slices.” The “pizzas” start with a cookie or brownie crust, which is topped with your favorite ice cream flavor and then with ice cream toppings, according to the company’s website.
“We are thrilled to bring Baskin-Robbins to the Lawrence community with the opening of our new shop,” Patel said in the release. “We look forward to welcoming our guests and helping them celebrate all of life’s happiest moments with our menu offerings.”
The ice cream store was previously known for its 31 flavors, but that number has grown to more than 1,400 in its “flavor library,” according to the business’s website.
The location will hold a grand opening celebration on March 23. The first 15 guests will have an opportunity to receive free ice cream scoops for a year, according to the news release.
