“‘Kula’ is a Sanskrit word used by the yoga community to denote inclusion and belonging. So for me, a scoop shop was always in the plan,” says Founder and Owner, Libby Lefanowicz. “It’s a place for the community to get together and enjoy a decadent and delicious scoop of ice cream. For many of our biggest fans, this is the first time they can enjoy any flavor they want and get it on a waffle cone because of allergies, dietary preferences, or restrictions.”

Libby continues, “We hope to be a sweet retreat for our local businesses, customers, friends, and partners and that everyone feels welcome in our doors.”
