After nine years in business, ice cream shop Two Spoons, owned by Spruce Confections, has closed its doors. A notice was posted on the storefront at 1021 Pearl Street after closing earlier in October.
The message on the door reads:
"Thank you Boulder for 9 excellent years as your local scratch gelato/ice cream/soup shop! We are consolidating our efforts and focusing on wholesale. See our pints at Whole Foods. good news: Another amazing gelato shop from the folks at Fior di Latte will be taking over this space!! Thanks again and come see us at Spruce Confections -- our bakery cafe a few blocks West. Sincerely, David and the Two Spoons gang."
Fior di Latte co-owner Bryce Licht confirmed the expansion. The gelato shop will stay in the current location at 1433 Pearl Street, four blocks east, but will take the opportunity to expand and launch this second location. Production will move to the Two Spoons location because it has a much larger kitchen than their current, and it's more equipped to meet their daily production needs to support their rapid growth.
Licht shares further plans for the second location: "in the new space, we'll offer the same great gelato, made fresh everyday, but with some tweaks and improvements to the presentation, menu, and service, based on our experience thus far."
Fior di Latte starts construction on the space next week and aims to have the second space up and running before Thanksgiving.
