Award-winning ice cream shop opens third location
WRAL Voters' Choice Award winner for best ice cream, Two Roosters, has opened its third location. Take a trip to Golden Belt in Durham to see what their new shop looks like.
Yeah, So we opened our Golden Belt campus location in August of this year, and this is amazing space in East Durham. It's converted Cotton Mill. Also associate ID Teoh the tobacco industry, as you well know in Durham, the American Tobacco Warehouse district. But it's amazing they have offices here. The most notable tenant is high wire brewing, and we're just across the green space from high wire. We love it here. Eso So golden belt is a is a mixed use space. Uh, there's actually some on site apartments that folks, uh, rent out. There's, uh, some offices here. Some companies Stratus Solar, which is our next door neighbor, and some other tenants in the building. That way house about 1500 workers or so office buildings on so forth. And then there is a retail component. High wire brewing is here. Where next door neighbors toe high wire. There's a J Light's Cafe opening. Soon there's a There's a pet store veterinarian hospital here, so it's a It's quite the eclectic mix of tenants within Golden Bell, and we love it here. But where we are is was called the Pump House, and it actually was an old coal refinery where they used it to generate the power for the plant. And so we're literally at the bottom of the smokestack. So if you need a landmark, er we're at the bottom and they would they would burn coal, and then the smoke would rise from the stacks and power this whole place. It's a pretty amazing, uh, conversion from an old coal source to now and ice cream house. So two roosters started in 2015. We started as just a food truck, um, out of the cookery in Durham, and we've grown it from the food truck to three brick and mortar stores now, too, And Riley, one in Durham way, also have a stand at the Durham Bull Stadium when they're playing baseball. And we have, ah, food truck that caters weddings, events all over the triangle, And, uh, this is our home. And so we want to bring delicious ice cream to the people of the triangle. The ice cream and two roosters is for sure, inspired by local flavors, so you'll find what we call our regulars. And those include flavors like, uh, cookies and cream Vanilla chocolate, uh, sea salt chip cookie dough ice cream and then the probably the most fun for me. Is that what we call the guest list? In every month we rotate in ah themed menu. We're so thankful for W A. L and the Voters Choice Awards. What an incredible honor to be a part of this process and to be neighbors on a ballot with some of the most incredible artisans and really friends of mine. And so we wanna thank you for voting on and just continue to do great work in the triangle job, Ariel.
