Treat Dreams in Ferndale debuted its new expanded space on Friday at a grand re-opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The ice cream shop has tripled its dining space and expanded its kitchen to meet a growing demand in the store and at community events, food truck rallies and more.
"We would like to thank all of our loyal customers that have allowed us to take this next step," Treat Dreams owner Scott Maloney said in a press release. "Hopefully this new makeover and expansion will result in an even better Treat Dreams experience for our guests."
The larger space has new furniture, a kids area and windows for customers to view the expanded kitchen. The space also allows Treat Dreams to expand its on-site ice cream making events including its popular Kids Camps and "Treat Dreams After Dark" ice cream parties for adults.
Treat Dreams announced the expansion Jan. 10 and had to close the shop for three and a half weeks for the renovations. Maloney said on Friday that it was a busy three weeks and said he was making finishing touches to the space right up until the grand re-opening started.
"It feels like I can breathe again now," Maloney laughed.
The new space opened to the public at 7 p.m. Friday. Find more details on the expansion project here.
