Scoops, the East Hollywood ice cream shop, has attracted a strong following with such exotic flavors as Basil Goat Cheese, Brown Bread and Horchata Caramel. Now, Scoops owner Tai Kim is preparing to open a new location in Highland Park. People familiar with his plans said that Kim will open a store and production facility in an approximately 1,200-square-foot storefront now under construction near York Boulevard and N. Avenue 51.
Some neighborhood merchants had heard that the owner of Scoops had spent considerable time looking for a location on York, where several new cafes and restaurants have opened recently.
* Correction: A previous version of this post said that the owner Scoops Westside was opening the Highland Park store. That’s wrong. The owner of the original Scoops in East Hollywood is opening the new outlet.
