To be considered super-premium, ice cream needs an "overrun" of less than 50%. Ice cream overrun refers to the amount of air pushed into the ice cream while it is being made. The standard of 50% overrun means that ice cream is made with one part air to every two parts cream. The Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream standard is 35% overrun, meaning we add one part air to every three parts cream. This results in creamier, smoother and richer ice cream tastes!
Hub City Scoops is a family owned and operated ice cream shop in downtown Spartanburg. The concept for Hub City Scoops came about in January 2014 as Michael and Kathy Silverman saw the need for additional places for families and individuals to enjoy and extend their time downtown. They noticed there was a lack of places for families to visit, enjoy super-premium ice cream with friends and family in a inviting atmosphere! So planning began......
First and foremost was selecting an ice cream, but not just any ice cream, one like no other. After lots of research (and product tasting, tough job, I know) the decision was crystal clear! Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream out of Madison Wisconsin won hands down to every other brand tried! After a trip there to meet the founders, their team and tour the facility the process of opening was thrown into high gear.
After the ice cream selection process was complete they moved on to location. Knowing downtown Spartanburg was the goal and after looking at multiple available spaces it was decided, 147 E. Main Street was the spot! A lot of time was spent on design and other aspects that were important to create an atmosphere where friends and family could come, create memories all while enjoying completely, fantastic ice cream!!
Hope y'all will visit us soon!
