MOLLY MOON’S AND CHOCOLATE BOX PARTNER TO OPEN SCOOP SHOP
Innovative business agreement adds fifth shop to Moon’s roster
SEATTLE, Tuesday, June 28, 2011 – Molly Moon Neitzel today announced the opening of her fifth Seattle-based scoop shop to be located inside the already established Chocolate Box retail space at 108 Pine St. in downtown Seattle.
This business licensing agreement between Molly Moon’s and Chocolate Box owners Michel and Valerie Brotman is yet another example of Neitzel’s innovative business plans to grow the Moon’s brand in an exciting, but sustainable manner.
“I’m excited to be partnering with Michel and Valerie on the newest member of the Molly Moon’s family,” said Neitzel. “Expanding to downtown Seattle is an amazing opportunity for us and I look forward to sharing our signature ice creams and sorbets with its residents, professionals and tourists. It truly is a dream to showcase our flavors, which are made and inspired by local and seasonal ingredients, so close to Pike Place Market.”
“Our hope is that Chocolate Box becomes downtown Seattle’s favorite dessert destination,” said Brotman. “We're thrilled to be teaming with Molly and her crew, and know that Molly Moon’s ice cream will help us reach that exciting goal!”
In celebration of Moon’s downtown Seattle grand opening, kids 12 years of age and under, who visit the shop on Friday, July 1 between 3 and 5 p.m. will receive a complementary kid-sized scoop of their favorite flavor. Molly Moon’s at Chocolate Box will be open daily from 12-noon to 11 p.m.
Moon’s, which was recently named one of the Top 25 Ice Cream Spots in the U.S. by Food + Wine magazine and one of Seattle Business magazine’s 100 Best Companies in Washington to Work For, will have a total of five scoop shop locations by Labor Day of 2011. It’s Madrona micro-shop, featuring ice cream confections, pints and scoops in lidded cups, opened in May of 2011 and Molly Moon’s Queen Anne will arrive near the end of summer.
