Expect even more rolled ice cream in D.C. eventually.
New York-based 10Below, one of the more popular locations to find the trendy sweet treat in Manhattan, has enlisted a real estate firm to expand outside of the market — and D.C. is one of their targets. Along with Washington, the ice cream shop plans to expand to Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago, and Los Angeles, according to a press release from brokers Eastern Consolidated, which are representing the company in its expansion.
A Philadelphia lease has already been inked. Eater has reached out to the company for any specific details on their D.C. plans. 10Below currently has four locations in New York, which often draw long lines at peak times.
The rolled ice cream trend has just started to appear in Washington. Icy Code is planning to open this weekend in Dupont Circle, while October saw the opening of the Thai rolled ice cream shop Class 520 in Rockville.
