A New Zealand-style ice cream shop, Zed’s, is looking to open a second store in Austin, Texas. The shop, which originated in Portland, Oregon, blends fresh fruit and ice cream using a special machine to create a frozen treat that is both swirly and creamy.
The Austin location of Zed’s has been so successful since its opening in 2021 that co-owner Mack Brown told the New York Times that they want to open a second location.
New Zealand-style ice cream, also known as real fruit ice cream, is a popular concept in New Zealand.
It involves taking premium hard-packed ice cream and blending it with real frozen fruit using a special machine. The result is a delicious, creamy soft-serve-like treat.
Zed’s is not the only New Zealand-style ice cream shop in the United States. There are similar shops in Colorado, Oregon, Texas, and Hawaii.
However, it is still a relatively new concept in the US and has not yet gained widespread popularity.
The opening of a second Zed’s location in Austin is an exciting development for fans of this unique style of ice cream. It will provide another opportunity for residents and visitors to the city to enjoy this delicious frozen treat.
