Jeni's ice cream chain opens new shop in central Dallas neighborhood
Prolific ice cream chain Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams is opening another location in Dallas, this time in the center of the city.
According to a release, they're opening in Victory Park at 2422 Victory Park Ln #100, Dallas with a grand opening on August 10. They're taking over the late, great, lamented Cafe Victoria, which closed in 2021.
Jeni's is a national brand based in Columbus, Ohio, that is also available by retail at Whole Foods Market and Central Market stores. They made their Dallas debut with their first shop in the also-very-central Deep Ellum neighborhood in February 2021, then a second location in Addison's Prestonwood Place shopping center in October 2021, and a third on Greenville Avenue in 2022.
They also have locations in Florida, Nashville, Chicago, Atlanta, Charleston, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Charlotte, Austin, and Houston. Google says there are now 66 locations total.
Their scoop shops offer about 19 flavors such as Milkiest Chocolate, Wildberry Lavender, Brown Butter Almond Brittle, and Goat Cheese & Roasted Cherries.
They also do vegan flavors such as Caramel Pecan Sticky Buns, and Cold Brew With Coconut Cream.
The store also sells pints to go in a wider variety than what one might encounter in a grocery store, along with swag such as T-shirts and founder Jeni Britton Bauer's James Beard Award-winning cookbook,

What they don't sell is sundaes, milkshakes, or other ice cream-based treats; it's scoops only: one full scoop, two half scoops, a trio with three half scoops, or a flight of 10 half scoops.
A fourth location in the DFW area might not otherwise merit its own story, but for the fact that Victory Park is such a central and prominent spot. Although, were a location to open in Fort Worth, that would merit a story. What can we say, we'll pretty much post about every new Jeni's, at least for the time being.
