A Philadelphia-based ice cream store is preparing to open in Augusta as the chain continues to expand throughout the country.
Sweet Charlie’s, a chain that has become know for its Thai rolled ice cream, first opened in Philly’s Washington Square in 2016 and has steadily grown into a network of 20 stores around the country. The Augusta location is set to open this summer, according to the company’s CFO, Brandon Billig.
Now, Augusta will be in on the fun.
“Augusta is a beautiful demographic with a rich history,” Billig said. “Our brand will embrace the gracious Southern charm that Augusta offers and is certain to be a crowd favorite for those who stroll along the Savannah River and surrounding areas.”
The 1,200-foot ice cream shop will open at 630 Crane Creek Dr., in the new Crane Creek development that will be anchored by Sprouts.
