Central Pa. ice cream company expands with second Cumberland County shop
An ice cream company with roots in downtown Harrisburg is expanding.
Earlier this week, Urban Churn opened its third shop at 258 Westminster Drive at the Carlisle Crossings in Carlisle.
Owner Adam Brackbill founded Urban Churn about nine years ago in a modest space at Midtown Cinema generating ice cream in six-gallon batches.
The ice cream is created with all-organic components and no artificial flavorings or colorings. Some components are sourced locally for the ice cream, which includes 14 % butterfat.
““It’s been a wild ride,” Brackbill not too long ago shared on a Facebook post.
“From beginning off churning behind a cinema in Midtown Harrisburg, surviving by way of COVID-19 to opening our 2nd and 3rd areas, I’ve discovered a lot and am so thankful. We’ve discovered a lot by way of failures and successes, and we’ve grown by way of partnerships and buddies. Urban Churn would not exist if it wasn’t for our neighborhood and supporters,” he mentioned.
Urban Churn also operates shops at the Silver Creek Plaza in Silver Spring Township and in Midtown Harrisburg.
Brackbill is identified for his inventive method to ice cream, concocting flavors like scrapple, sauerkraut and honey roasted cricket, to name a couple of. But clients also can discover requirements like vanilla, chocolate and mint chocolate chip.
The shops also sell desserts such as bar sundaes, bourbon banana splits, baklava ice cream sandwiches and tiramisu sundaes.
Urban Churn partners with other restaurants to carry its ice cream and sells pints at Giant shops which includes at 2300 Linglestown Road in Susquehanna Township and 6560 Carlisle Pike in Silver Spring Township.
The ice cream is developed in a Harrisburg commissary that functions an updated churning facility with renovated kitchen, loading docks and added freezer space.
Hours at the Carlisle Urban Churn place are 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 11:30 a.m.-ten p.m. Friday-Saturday and noon-eight p.m. Sundays. Closed Mondays.
