Brooklyn-based OddFellows Ice Cream Co. will open a 1,400-square-foot King Street shop this fall. Located in the space once occupied by Revelator Coffee, the shop will “offer a revolving menu of 30 flavors, including a large selection of vegan options … various soft-serve flavors, milkshakes and ice cream floats,” a press release said.
Chef Sam Mason and husband-and-wife duo Mohan and Holiday Kumar opened the first OddFellows storefront in 2013 and have since expanded, adding five more locations, including one in Seoul, South Korea, with four more on the way. The company prides itself on “weird and wacky flavors” of small-batch ice cream — the team has whipped up over 500 in the eight years since opening and offers nationwide shipping.
“Charleston has long been known for its unparalleled hospitality and we’re excited to play a part in its longstanding legacy by bringing a new kind of culinary experience to the community,” said co-owner Mohan Kumar in the release. “We can’t wait to provide a fun and vibrant space for friends, family and loved ones to come together and indulge in our unconventional ice cream flavors.”
Charleston residents can get a taste of OddFellows Thursday, Aug. 12 at Leon’s Oyster Shop, when ownership will serve a “King St. Counter Crunch Sundae” made with housemade sorghum dulce de leche, benne seed wafers and OddFellows’ “Bodega Counter Crunch” ice cream from 5-10 p.m. OddFellows will also offer free scoops at Graft Wine Shop Saturday, Aug. 14.
