Ice cream lovers have three more days this week to put their money where their mouths are and convince Molly Moon to bring a shop to Madrona.
The big blue truck “Leo” will be parked on 34th Ave Wednesday from 5-10pm, Thursday from 7-10pm and Friday, Christmas Eve, from 12-5pm. Then they’ll head to Queen Anne for January and Ballard for February before deciding which neighborhood has earned a brick-and-mortar store.
From our vantage point (our apartment window directly faces the truck) it seems like there’s been a steady stream of customers throughout December, even despite the weather. One of the truck’s employees reported seeing repeat visitors day after day, as well as support from local business owners.
But it sounds like the final determination will be made this spring after looking at the numbers for each location (it can’t hurt to join the Facebook page, too.) And Molly Moon’s PR rep, Jennifer Carroll, tells us no potential storefronts in Madrona are confirmed at this time, though they’ll continue to evaluate options.
Do you think Madrona can support an ice cream store – especially when put up against larger ‘hoods like Queen Anne and Ballard?
