Clumpies Ice Cream Company, owned by See Rock City (SRC), Inc., announced the opening of a second location at the lower station of the Incline Railway. The store officially opened to the public on March 14, with its grand opening set for Tuesday.

 

“We are so excited to bring Clumpies ice cream to our fans in this part of the city,” said SRC President Susan Harris.

“Clumpies is a distinctive Chattanooga brand, and we think the St. Elmo community is a perfect match for its unique offerings. Doug Chapin, manager of Clumpies, and the team from SRC have been able to transform the lower Incline location so that locals and tourists alike can enjoy an authentic ice cream experience. We are also grateful to the team at the Incline Railway and CARTA for working with us on this expansion.”

This second location boasts a brand new flavor called “St. Elmo’s Fire,” tasting of Mayan spiced chocolate with cayenne candied pecans. “When we decided to create an ice cream to celebrate the opening of our new store, we wanted it to be a flavor that reflected the neighborhood and its people,” said SRC Culinary Experience Director Billy Sparks. “What we ended up with was a classic flavor that is new and fresh, it's eclectic, it's bold and quite frankly, it's a little bit nutty. As a St. Elmonian of 18 years, I think that sums us up pretty well.”

The original Clumpies Ice Cream store is on Frazier Avenue in North Chattanooga, and also has a production site on the Southside. The Clumpies brand can be tasted at the Chattanooga Market, Warehouse Row and other events, as well as several local restaurants. They have also partnered with Pure Sodaworks at the Frazier Avenue location for delicious beverages.

 

Opened in 1999 by the son of a third-generation candy maker, Clumpies Ice Cream Co. continues the Chattanooga tradition of creating products noted for their uniqueness and quality. This premium gourmet ice cream is made with only the best ingredients, 10 gallons at a time. Its micro-batching process allows the ice cream to retain its smooth and creamy texture, whipped in less air than other ice creams.
