Humphry Slocombe Dogpatch Grand Opening May 30!
On a mission to make ice cream less vanilla, Humphry Slocombe - the chef-driven ice creamery known for unexpected flavors - announced the opening of its newest scoop shop in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco on May 30th at 699 22nd Street, San Francisco, CA 94107.
For the Grand Opening on May 30th, the ice creamery will give out free scoops to celebrate with its new neighbors from 3pm until 8pm.
And to make this day even sweeter, the ice creamery will ask guests for an optional donation of $1 when they grab their free scoop, with all proceeds going towards Project Open Hand's mission to bring meals with love to the community.
"We are so appreciative to be a part of Humphry Slocombe's grand opening of their new location. We have a long-standing relationship with Humphry Slocombe, and they have always supported our efforts to bring healthy and nutritious foods to our community members. While they offer many delicious flavors that we have all grown to love, their secret ingredient to success is their caring and heart they give to our Bay Area residents in need." - Paul Hepfer, Project Open Hand Chief Executive Officer
If you can't make it to the grand opening but would like to give to Project Open Hand's mission to provide meals with love, please donate in the section below.
Thank you to Humphry Slocombe for giving out scoops with love to support their neighbors in need!
About Humphry Slocombe
Rebellious and unapologetic, Humphry Slocombe's ice cream has its own personality and flavors that appeal to adult tastes, but is loved by all. Co-founders Jake Godby and Sean Vahey opened their first shop in the Mission District in 2008, naming it after the two lead characters (Mr. Humphries and Mrs. Slocombe) from the 1970's sitcom "Are You Being Served?"
With the new Pruneyard store, the company has grown to include seven Scoop Shop locations in the San Francisco Bay Area: The Mission District, Ferry Building, Oakland, Berkeley, Emeryville, and Redwood City also serve scoops, specials, and pints. Pre-packed pints are sold in all Northern California Whole Foods locations and other high-end markets.
While the company founders don't think of their flavors as 'unusual' by their own standards, they invite customers to sample everything in the dip case so they can decide for themselves!
