Glenburn Roadside is our walk-up window and production kitchen located at 4347 Hastings Street, next to Chickadee Boutique. We have been working on this project for a while but we’re still waiting for the right circumstances to get it open. The pandemic has forced our plans to the backburner for now but we’re still hopeful we can get this project going soon.
As a small business, extra cash is not always easily accessible so we ran a Kickstarter campaign to a) share our project with a wider audience, b) create buzz about the project and c) raise funds to get it open by summer. The Kickstarter launched just as the world closed up shop and amidst all the uncertainty in the world, it wasn’t successful. We did learn alot during the process and we might re-launch a campaign at a later date.
About this Project
Glenburn Roadside is a complementary business to our main Glenburn location. The production space in the back will help us produce more brownies, cookies and toppings for our sundaes so we won’t run out as often. It will also provide us with the opportunity to start making our own ice cream flavours which is something we’ve wanted to do for a very long time. In addition, we can make dairy-free water ice and vegan ice creams that we haven’t had access to in the past. We also want to make ice cream cakes and novelties too.
We’re also looking forward to partnering with other small businesses to make Glenburn Roadside fun and unique. The donuts from Royal City Donuts that we’ve been offering on Saturdays only at Glenburn will be available on a more regular basis at Roadside. We’re even hoping to have some donut flavours exclusive to us.
The menu at Roadside will consist of scoops, shakes, sundaes, a selection of novelties (like ice cream sandwiches and ice cream bars) plus light lunch fare. We plan to be open a little earlier than Glenburn so ice cream after lunch will be a possibility!
While the world’s current circumstances have forced us to take a step back with this project, we are determined to bring it to life as soon as possible!
