Top o’ the mornin’ to ya.
Lucky’s Rolled Ice Cream, with flavors representing Irish names, sayings and slogans, will open in the heart of Coweta’s Broadway District on Sept. 15.
Brenae Lamb owns it along with her husband, Jacob. They clearly have a sweet tooth because they already own Gypsy Ice snow cones on 5101 S. 193 E. Ave., in Broken Arrow.
With family ties originating in Ireland, customers can expect to see flavors with Irish names. For example, the “wibbly wobbly wonder” is expected to be on the menu. The Wibbly Wobbly Wonder was ice cream on a stick marketed in Ireland in the 80’s.
Lucky’s will serve rolled ice cream, rolled ice cream shakes and dipped ice cream rolls. They’re expected to list specialty items on the menu around the holidays.
Family time is especially important to the Lambs. Breane remembers walking up and down the Broadway District with her three young kids, and two foster babies. Now she’s glad her shop will be among the many shops other Coweta families can walk into.
“We came up with the menu ourselves,” Lamb said. “It was so fun.”
Having bought Gypsy Ice from a previous owner back in 2019, Lamb said she was shocked to figure out opening up an actual, sit-down establishment is completely different than operating a snow cone trailer.
“I thought I was knew what I was doing,” Lamb said with a laugh.
Like any small business initial hurdles, the Lambs are on track to open the shop on Sept. 15 — just in time for the Coweta Fall Festival Sept. 16-18. They plan to have Gypsy Ice set up during the festival, as well. The Lambs will run the two businesses simultaneously.
“We decided it was time to expand the business. We’re expected to have a lot of the same clientele,” Lamb said.
Lucky’s Rolled Ice Cream will be open from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. every day, unlike Gypsy Ice, which is seasonal. There will be tables inside, a bar and eventually, window seating.
“We’re so excited,” Lamb said. “We’re getting all of our employees trained up right now. I think it’s going to be a super fun weekend and I can’t wait to see everyone.”
