Low-calorie ice cream option Halo Top Creamery certainly seems serious about expanding into the brick-and-mortar realm, with official word coming down about a second Los Angeles-area opening at the Westfield Century City mall later this month.
Halo Top began life as a relatively healthy ice cream brand available in frozen food sections of grocery stores nationwide. They’ve been keen to make an actual retail footprint though, and have announced plans to open across Los Angeles as well as down in San Diego. The company’s first foray into the brick-and-mortar realm took place at the Westfield Topanga mall, with word of a follow-up in Century City to come later. Now it’s looking like an April 24 arrival, complete with soft serve machines offering both vegan and dairy-free options, and a toppings area with more than 50 choices including cheesecake and mochi.
As for the space itself, expect a mint green layout with lots of wood, glass frontage, and a marble counter up front. Expect the place to be packed on opening day (Tuesday, April 24), as the company is giving out free ice cream to folks who stop by, including a new “Stardust Sundae,” which comes with candy star sprinkles, glitter, and plenty of spacey color tones.
That sundae is free for the first 50 folks who show up on opening day. Moving forward, expect daily hours from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., or 7 p.m. if it’s Sunday. And as for future expansions, expect something closer to the Eastside later this year.
