A Johns Creek dessert shop has expanded with a second location and will celebrate its grand opening this weekend.

Where’s the scoop opened last weekend open Friday, Aug. 21 in the Alpharetta City Center development at 26 Old Roswell St. The shop, from Atlanta native and Georgia State University alum Zak Khimji and Zein Rahemtulla, is a Georgia Grown business, using local ingredients from businesses including Mountain Fresh Creamery to make its products.

Rolled ice creams are made with A2 milk, making them easier to digest.

There are also several vegan ice cream options, made with a plant base derived from peas. Customers can also create their own ice cream bowls with a variety of flavors and toppings.

Other treats on the menu include bubble teas, coffee drinks, cakes and local honey from Georgia Honey Farm.

What’s the Scoop has also secured a third location on the Eastside Beltline across from Piedmont Park, slated to open by the end of the year.

To celebrate its opening, Where’s the Scoop is offering a free T-shirt to the first 25 customers on Aug. 21, a free “fun sized” ice cream to the first 100 customers on Aug. 22; and a free metal bubble tea straw for the first 50 bubble tea orders on Aug. 23.
