A Philadelphia-born hand-rolled ice cream concept is making its way across the Delaware River to set up shop in South Jersey.
Kyle Billig was only 18 years old when he first founded his company, Sweet Charlie’s, a hand-rolled ice cream shop offering Thai-inspired ice cream rolls, back in 2015.
Billig and older brother Jacob opened the first location in early 2016 at 711 Walnut St. in Washington Square West, and followed that up a few months later with a branch in Rehoboth Beach, Del. A third location in Rittenhouse Square will open in early May, a spokesman said.
A fourth location is slated to open this year in South Jersey at 128 Kings Highway, the main street of Haddonfield that is also home to food and drink operators like Saxbys, Animo Juice, Angelo’s Pizzeria, among others.
Sweet Charlie’s will replace Hanna’s Gourmet Spices.
The Haddonfield outpost is scheduled to open in the first week of June. The 1,000-square-foot location will have seating for 10 to 15 people. It will also have outdoor seating.
