Update on Aug. 28, 2018: This story has been updated with news of the closure of the Wild About Harry's in Deep Ellum.

After months of change for ice cream and custard shop Wild About Harry's in Dallas, the company now operates at just one address: 4527 Travis St. in Dallas.

On Aug. 27, 2018, Wild About Harry's closed its other location in Deep Ellum. "We will miss the friendly Deep Ellum community," a Facebook post says.

My eyes and my stomach can confirm: Wild About Harry's has reopened on Travis Street in Dallas. The Deep Ellum shop, however, has closed.

Fans of Wild About Harry's custard and hot dogs likely knew the decades-old shop from its longtime home near Knox Street and McKinney Avenue, where its giant, smiling weenie statue they call the Hot Dog Man stood, smiling. That statue has been moved to the Travis Street shop, an easy four-minute walk away.

The company is named for the late Harry Mead Coley, Jr., who died in 2014 of complications from lung cancer. Coley's daughter, Sydney Coley-Berglund, is the president of the company, and said in April that finding a new address in or near Highland Park was important. "That's where we began," she said.

Wild About Harry's new home on Travis Street is temporary, according to a statement from the landlord. They have a month-to-month agreement, according to Steve Hefner at The Retail Connection.
