Cape Cod Creamery Opens New Store Designed by BLF&R
HYANNIS, MA (May 13, 2014) – Cape Cod Creamery will be expanding into the Hyannis area with the opening of its newest location at 655 Rt. 132 in Hyannis, MA in the Christmas Tree Promenade Plaza on Thursday, May 15th at 11: 00 am. The store’s regular hours will be daily from 11:00 am to 10:30 pm during the summer season.
Cape Cod Creamery is known for its super premium, homemade ice cream that is displayed “gelato-style” in stainless steel pans, as well as its wrap around porch with trademark blue and yellow Adirondack chairs. Ice cream sold at the new location will include the same favorite flavors found at the original store and will be freshly made on site. Currently, the Creamery produces 55 different flavors of ice cream and typically displays 24 flavors in the ice cream case, rotating a few flavors in and out each day. Some of its more popular flavors have playful local names like Allen Harbor Almond Joy, Cummaquid Coconut, Chapin Cherry Chocolate and Craigville Carmel Crunch.
“There’s an old adage that we ‘Eat with our Eyes’ and our display is very visual with the ice cream scooped in mounds to display the fresh ingredients,” said owner Alan Davis. “We want customers to walk in and visually experience our unique flavors that were created right here on Cape Cod.”
The ice cream store was designed by Brown Lindquist Fenuccio & Raber Architects. The General Contractor was Coastal Construction of Duxbury, MA in cooperation with the Property Manager Turtle Rock, LLC of Yarmouthport.
“We tried to maintain the hometown feel of the original store with a large open central space for friends and neighbors to gather and visit as they ordered their favorite ice cream,” said Kurt Raber from BLFR Architects. “The high ceiling extends upward to a glass cupola which bathes the space with natural light to give a more open feel. The new building also pays homage to the original with a large, open wrap around porch where the trademark blue and yellow Adirondack chairs invite families to stop and linger while they enjoy their ice cream.”
The new location will be open year-round with extended hours during the summer. During the off-season, Davis plans to continue to offer ice cream, as well as sandwiches and other food items. Besides its two retail locations, the Cape Cod Creamery sells packaged quarts of its premium ice cream at grocery stores from South Boston to Provincetown.
