Ice cream tastes even sweeter at the Golden Scoop. That’s because the Overland Park-based shop’s mission goes beyond serving dessert to providing meaningful employment to people in our community with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Team members, dubbed “Super Scoopers” will work making ice cream and baked goods, serving treats, preparing coffee drinks and more, receiving support from managing staff and volunteer coaches to empower them. Although the menu is a closely guarded secret, co-founder Michelle Reeves divulges it will include a rum cake flavor made using Jude’s Rum Cakes, as well as a summer-ready strawberries and cream. The shop will also serve up a custom java blend from Hattie’s Fine Coffee. The Golden Scoop (9540 Nall Ave.) is expected to open in early April, just in time for ice cream season.
