Chattanooga Ben And Jerry’s Re-Opening

Tuesday, August 25, 2020
After being closed for three months, the Chattanooga Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop is back to "serving euphoria" under a new leadership team, just in time for Black Business Month. The Black-owned business group also runs two successful scoop shops in Georgia and is proud to be leading a team that is committed to diversity, officials said.  

With roots in the South and experience with community activism, Phillip Scotton and the leadership team are excited to widen their roots with the new scoop shop in Chattanooga.
“Our team loves the Chattanooga area and is so happy to be joining the amazing businesses on Broad Street. We aim to give you a reason to visit soon,” Mr. Scotton said.  

Officials said, "In the Ben & Jerry’s spirit, the Chattanooga scoop shop under the Scotton leadership team embodies the Ben & Jerry’s three-part mission - fantastic ice cream, sustainable financial growth and serving the common good through the social mission. 

"The Chattanooga scoop shop is looking forward to being a meeting place and support system for the Chattanooga community. The Chattanooga scoop shop encourages non-profits to reach out about social mission events, donations and benefit nights." 

Any social mission inquires can be directed to Anna at anna@iccbenjerry.com.  

To celebrate the re-opening of the Chattanooga scoop shop, this week only, the shop is offering 10 percent to any fan who brings in a copy of this article.  

The Chattanooga scoop shop can be found at 201 Broad St., Chattanooga, TN 37402 and is open from noon-10 p.m. daily. 

All menu items are available to go including cones, cups, milkshakes, sundaes, pints and cakes. Customers are asked to order ahead at www.benjerry.com/takeout.
