Cousins Kim & Tyler Malek celebrate opening with $1 scoops preview on Thursday, May 3 benefiting the Lake Oswego Schools Foundation
(Portland, OR – April 27, 2018) – Salt & Straw Ice Cream will open its doors in Lake Oswego on Friday, May 4 at 11am. To mark the occasion, Salt & Straw will celebrate with $1 scoops from 6-8pm on Thursday, May 3, with proceeds going to the Lake Oswego Schools Foundation. $1 scoops will be served from Salt & Straw’s ice cream cart in front of the soon to open scoop shop. The family-run ice cream company known for its taste-provoking flavors will open with beloved classic ice cream flavors like Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons and Almond Brittle with Salted Ganache. These flavors will be joined by monthly rotating seasonal menus. After years of participating in the Lake Oswego summer Farmers Market, Salt & Straw founders and cousins Kim and Tyler Malek are thrilled to be opening a permanent gathering place, in the heart of the Lake Oswego community.
“We’ve been lucky to get to know the Lake Oswego community for years with our ice cream cart at the Lake Oswego Farmers Market, and it’s been a long time dream to open a Salt & Straw scoop shop here! The stars aligned with this opportunity and we can’t wait to open our doors on May 4,” said Salt & Straw CEO and Co-Founder Kim Malek.
Salt & Straw’s Lake Oswego scoop shop has been designed by longtime collaborator Andee Hess of Portland-based Osmose Design. The scoop shop includes the new, fresh design ideas flowing between Osmose and Kim and Tyler Malek. This exciting, large corner shop with wall to wall windows, features a custom pendant light over the cashwrap designed by Urbancase, a play on the abstraction of scoops of ice cream. The hand painted striped storefront windows are reminiscent of vintage fabrics and nostalgia. Featuring plenty of light, this open, fun space is going to be fresh and bright spot to hang out in all year long.
The Lake Oswego scoop shop will have Salt & Straw’s May Flowers and Classic menus available.
