Earlier this month, Butter & Cream announced plans to open a third brick-and-mortar, this time in Norcross. A post made across the ice creamery’s social media channels reads, “Overlooking South Peachtree St., our new location will be in The South End of Historic Norcross development just south of Holcomb Bridge Road.”
Over a phone interview with What Now Atlanta, owner Stacy Gunther shared what excites her most about the expansion to Norcross.
“When I went saw the space, it just spoke to me. It was charming; I thought it had a lot of potential, and I’m really excited about what Mason Zimmerman’s developing—that whole south end project is really exciting,” she said. Gunther has looked at many spaces before and after visiting 127 S. Peachtree St. she just knew she wanted to move forward. “I like Norcross; it has a nice community-feel,” she added.
The new shop will be a bit smaller than its predecessors, coming in at around 750 square-feet. There will be limited tables inside but plenty of outdoor seating.
Gunther founded Butter & Cream in 2014, opening the brand’s first shop in Downtown Decatur. A second location followed in 2018, opening on the Eastside Trail of the Beltline.
Over the years, the artisan ice creamery has become known for its unique flavor combinations as well as its takes on the classics. Butterscotch Brownie, Honeycomb Forest, and OG Goodness, a brown sugar ice cream with pieces of ooey, gooey St. Louis butter cake are a few of Butter & Cream’s signature flavors. Seasonal and rotating scoops are also on the menu, along with sorbet, shakes, and baked goods made from scratch in-house.
Gunther says it’s probably too soon to comment on what flavors you can expect to debut at the Norcross shop, but you can check out Butter & Cream’s current menu by finding the company online.
The Norcross space is currently in the design phase, and Gunther expects she’ll have it up and running by late spring 2022.
