Popular ice cream chain Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams will open a scoop shop at Alpharetta mixed-use community Avalon in April 2017.
It will be the fourth metro Atlanta Jeni’s location, with stores already open in the Westside Provisions development, Krog Street Market and Decatur Square.
Jeni’s will open in the center of Avalon Boulevard as part of Avalon’s expansion. The expansion will include several new dining options, including Rumi’s Kitchen, Barleygarden Craft Kitchen and Bar, MF Bar, District 3 and Brine Fish House.
Additional retail businesses include Brooks Brothers, Urban Outfitters and Boogaloos. Office and living space will include The Hotel at Avalon and the Alpharetta Conference Center, which will open in early 2018.
There are also new restaurants and retail that have opened or are set to open this year as part of the development’s Phase I, including Farm to Ladle, which also has a Ponce City Market location and opened over the summer, and Cafe Intermezzo, which has locations in Dunwoody and Midtown Atlanta and is set to open next month.
