Arlington based Nicecream Factory opening up shop in Old Town

According to planning documents filed this week with the City (PDF), Nicecream Factory, located on Clarendon Blvd in Arlington, is opening a new shop at 726 King Street in Old Town Alexandria. The shop will be replacing the Jeymi Salon & Spa. The salon has apparently closed based upon reader input below. We have heard that the rent is this space has run fairly high.

According to their website, Nicecream uses a freezing agent and liquid nitrogen which allows them to freeze the ice cream on the spot in front of guests, creating the freshest handcrafted cup of ice cream. Their slogan is ‘It’s not just ice cream – it’s Nicecream’.

Here, Sandra Tran and her business partner Gilbert Welford discuss the Nicecream process…

They plan on having 250 to 400 patrons a day with 3 employees per shift for a total of 6 employees per day.

The proposed hours of operation for the new store will be:

  • Monday through Wednesday 11:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.
  • Thursday and Sunday 11:00 a.m.until 10:30 p.m.
  • Friday and Saturday 11:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m.

If you have any comments regarding the request, please contact Planning and Zoning staff at(703) 746-4666 or email the Planner associated with this case no later than September 22, 2016.

I had just noticed the vacancy on Friday! And then this popped up. Nicecream is GREAT. We had them cater our wedding instead of cake. So good.
