It’s the first franchised location of the Philadelphia-based rolled ice cream concept.
Philadelphia-based Sweet Charlie’s, a rolled ice cream and yogurt concept, will open its first Georgia outpost June 8, according to a Craigslist advert seeking talent for the the forthcoming location.
A press release mid-Wednesday confirms the opening date.
Sweet Charlie’s, at 3872 Roswell Road in the Buckhead Court shopping center, will be the young brand’s first franchised location.
John Martin, a 2012 University of Georgia graduate, is responsible for bringing the concept to Atlanta as the franchisee, according to the release.
“Sweet Charlie’s combines the art of making rolled ice cream with modern American showmanship to create a one-of-a-kind experience for all ages,” Martin said in the release.
“The best part is, it tastes delicious.”
Sweet Charlie’s confections start with a base of either ice cream, nonfat yogurt, or the company’s “Nada-Moo” vegan option. Each ice cream or frozen yogurt is made-to-order on a surface that is below 20 degrees. Because the surface is so cold, very small ice crystals form quickly. The process eliminates the need to add stabilizers, emulsifiers, and preservatives.
Ice cream rolls are served straight up in a cup or on a Sublime Doughnut, also known as the “Tall Charlie.”
The ice cream shop, the brainchild of 19-year-old Entrepreneur Kyle Billig, is looking to hire cashiers, “ice cream makers,” and “toppers.” Interested candidates can email their intent to [email protected].
