Since the homegrown ice cream shop MELT opened in Fort Worth in spring 2014, it has spawned a second shop in Dallas and is now moving out of its original digs in Fort Worth and into a bigger space. That's a quick success story for a small dessert brand.
Owners Kari and Mark Seher will pack up their freezers and head to Magnolia Avenue in Fort Worth in late spring 2016.
[UPDATE June 22 at 12:11 p.m.: Melt will open in its new space on July 1 from noon to 11 p.m.]
The new address (1201 W. Magnolia, Suite 115) will mean three times the kitchen space, a patio, and potentially, fewer ice cream shortages. (It tends to sell quickly.)
And though the owners will be moving out of their very vibrant black 'n yellow building, they've got some rad new art inspired by Banksy on the new building:
The new Melt will continue to change its flavors every six weeks. Some of Melt's flavors have included blueberry mint, cookie dough, lavender and honey, and a vegan grapefruit sorbet.
Melt Ice Creams will relocate from 954 W. Rosedale St. to 1201 Magnolia Ave., both in Fort Worth. Expected re-opening date is "late spring 2016," say the owners. The Dallas ice cream shop, called Motor Sisters and located at Truck Yard near Greenville Avenue, is still open.
