The first 100 guests receive Free Ice Cream for a Year on April 11th

DOWNINGTOWN, PA, USA, April 8, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream, named #1 ice cream on the planet by National Geographic, is expanding in Pennsylvania with the opening of its newest Scoop Shop in Downingtown, PA. Experienced franchisees Andy and Maria Rick are opening their second Handel’s at 520 E. Lancaster Ave. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for Thursday, April 11, when the first 100 guests will be treated to Free Ice Cream for a Year! Festivities start at 11 am and will be open to the public.

The Downingtown Handel’s is led by franchise owners Andy and Maria Rick. The husband-and-wife duo also own the Royersford Handel’s. The couple met at Drexel University and now have three children. Andy Rick is a chemical engineer and Maria Rick studied accounting. Both backgrounds have helped make their Royersford store successful.

“My husband and I have enjoyed running the Royersford store so much that we wanted to expand to a market that we felt needed an ice cream. We were already familiar with Handel’s, so it was a natural choice,” said Maria Rick, Co-Owner of the Downingtown Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream. “We love that even though Handel’s is a franchise, it still has an intimate feeling like a small company. Plus, we believe the product is superior to others in our area. Our first home was in Downingtown, so we’re very familiar with the community and look forward to bringing our freshly made fun ice cream flavors here.”

The Downingtown Handel’s boasts 1,900 sq. ft. and will serve up local and seasonal flavors including Mud Pie, Rocky Mocha Blast, Green Monster, Salty Caramel Truffle, and more. The store will offer dine-in, pickup, delivery, and catering.

The new store will have seasonal hours. From March-October, the Downingtown Handel’s will be open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and from November-February, it will be open 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
