Pinewood Forest in a press release Thursday announced the addition of Honeysuckle Gelato, the development’s third food and beverage tenant.
The ice cream shop, which has a location in Ponce City Market and an outpost opening soon in Lee + White, will join Pinewood Forest in late-fall 2019.
“We’ve been searching for the right spaces in which to extend our brand footprint, and we found Pinewood Forest to be the ideal retail location,” Wes Jones, co-founder and co-owner of Honeysuckle Gelato, said in the release.
“We’ll introduce what makes Honeysuckle Gelato unique and experiment with new offerings, though more than anything we’re eager to contribute to an incredible community that celebrates diversity and creativity.”
This brand extension will be the second brick-and-mortar location for Honeysuckle Gelato for Jones and partners Jackson Smith and Khatera Ballard.
Honeysuckle Gelato will serve its handmade ice cream and sorbet out of a 1,200-square-foot space in the development.
“We’re excited to work with the Pinewood Forest design team to develop a space that will celebrate and enhance the community,” Jones said.
“Our goal is to create a shop that is welcoming, warm and accessible, inside and out.”
Consumers can expect gelato flavors like Coffee Caramel Crunch, Lemon Raspberry Crumble, Bourbon Pecan Praline, Fresh Mint Chip and Nutella and seasonal sorbet flavors, as well as newly imaginative creations.
Honeysuckle Gelato intends to continue donating 5 percent of companywide profits to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
The ice cream shop joins Braise, a casual fine-dining concept from James Beard grant-winner Chef Tanya Jimenez, and Hop City Craft Beer & Wine and Barleygarden Kitchen & Craft Bar, which was announced earlier this summer.
As progression on the Pinewood Forest development continues, more food and beverage tenants will be shared in the coming months, according to the release.
