Arlington based Nicecream Factory opening up shop in Old Town
According to planning documents filed this week with the City (PDF), Nicecream Factory, located on Clarendon Blvd in Arlington, is opening a new shop at 726 King Street in Old Town Alexandria. The shop will be replacing the Jeymi Salon & Spa. The salon has apparently closed based upon reader input below. We have heard that the rent is this space has run fairly high.
According to their website, Nicecream uses a freezing agent and liquid nitrogen which allows them to freeze the ice cream on the spot in front of guests, creating the freshest handcrafted cup of ice cream. Their slogan is ‘It’s not just ice cream – it’s Nicecream’.
