Young Local Entrepreneurs Open First Ice Cream Shop of Its Kind in DC Metro Area

Falls Church-based entrepreneurs prove commitment to changing the way locals eat dessert with opening of first liquid nitrogen ice cream shop in Clarendon

Local entrepreneurs announced today the opening of Nicecream Factory, an ice cream shop offering an innovation experience of the classic frozen treat, a first of its kind in the D.C. Metro area.

The DC-based entrepreneurial couple who started the company, Sandra Tran and Gilbert Welsford, aim to change the way locals eat dessert by crafting premium ice cream to order and on the spot using fresh and locally sourced product and liquid nitrogen freezing technology, ultimately delivering an exceptional customer experience that is sure to delight dessert foodies in the Clarendon Marketplace Common.

“Nicecream Factory makes the freshest and creamiest ice cream you have ever had,” says Tran. “Each cup of ice cream is made to order, making our shop unique from every other in the market.”  

Founded in Spring 2013 with operations based out of Falls Church, Nicecream Factory has been an active participant of the local farmer’s markets community over the last year. In addition, the company has established a loyal following from a series of pop up shop appearances, as well as catering of corporate and social events, including an A-list celebrity wedding. Nicecream Factory won a number of accolades at the 2013 D.C. Scoop competition.

Both recent graduates of James Madison University’s College of Business, the couple is opening their first shop in the heart of Clarendon with the intent to expand to even more neighborhoods in the DC metro area, as well as Welsford’s home city of Philadelphia, in the coming year.

The Nicecream Factory ice cream shop, located at 2831 Clarendon Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22201, will launch a grand opening on May 17, 2014.
