Popular Kamloops Scoopz Ice Cream now on wheels
A well-known summer ice cream shop is expanding into the food truck scene with a recently renovated mobile trailer.
Scoopz Ice Cream Parlour already has a popular location in downtown Kamloops and this summer owner Adrianne Erlandson wanted to expand the business to local festivals and concerts.
You can find them at the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc celebration for National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21, at the fairgrounds with the new mobile unit.
This summer, Erlandson plans to stay around Kamloops but will see how it goes in regards to expanding outside of the Kamloops area, she said.
The trailer offers 12 varieties of ice cream and sorbets that will serve as an extension of the shop, she said. It also houses three people before things start to get a little crowded.
The mobile ice cream trailer will also be on site at the Kamloops Ribfest this August.
