Grand Opening Johnson’s Dublin
June 1 - June 4
The city of Dublin is in for a sweet treat just in time for summer. Matt Wilcoxon, president of Johnson’s Real Ice Cream is happy to announce their official grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony. The festivities begin on Thursday, June 1st and run throughout the weekend.
As promised when he took the reins of the family business in 2016, his goal was to grow the 67 year old ice cream company into a household name. And he is delivering on that promise with this new central Ohio location.
The shop is located in Old Dublin at 55 West Bridge Street (formerly Sisters Sweet Shoppe). The shop will carry 40 flavors of Johnson’s Real Ice Cream, as well as novelty items like clown cones, nutty buddies, ice cream cookie sandwiches, specialty order cakes and pies. The shop will also feature their signature and crowd pleasing milkshakes made with milk from Ohio Proud Farmers. In addition, there will even be treats exclusive to Dublin which are still under develop- ment.
