MaggieMoo’s Ice Cream & Treatery (Davie, Jacksonville, Orange Park)
***** MaggieMoo’s Ice Cream & Treatery, 2571 South University Drive, Davie, Florida 33324, (954) 382-1677.
MaggieMoo’s Ice Cream & Treatery is a “national” retail ice cream chain…it opened its first store in 1989 and currently has 3-Florida locations.
MaggieMoo’s stores make their ice cream-in-house…MaggieMoo’s hook-is that in addition to a set- flavor line-up…you can also pick from a slew of toppings which are then “folded” into the chosen hard ice cream. For you ice cream students out there, think Cold Stone Creamery and Marble Stone Creamery and you’ll be on the right concept page.
The other day Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats gave the MaggieMoo’s Davie joint a shot…sampled flavors–Chocolate 2 The Extreme, Express Yourself, Banana Beach, Cherry Vanilla Vacation, Better Batter Boogie Board and I gotta tell you…the ice cream was off the chart. You can check- www.maggiemoos.com for the description of the above flavors–and others on the menu.
I know that you guys are a smart-bunch-well at least some of you are…
As I mentioned above, Maggie Moo’s is a national chain, that said-Jeff Eats did some checking and found that it currently has 69 locations–down from a high of 400 stores just a few short years ago. Not to go into too much detail, but I also learned, that both Cold Stone and Marble Slab franchises have in recent years -been closing at an alarming rate– this- has Jeff Eats thinking that the novelty of “folding in” ice cream may have shot its load with retail customers. Now I’m just guessing here, but “the seen it, done it” factor maybe at play here. With that in mind, look for the “nitrogen made” ice cream concept to now get a “run” and then witness the inevitable musical-chair retail collapse.
Jeff Eats has absolutely no idea as to how (for our purposes) the Davie and to a lesser extent the Jacksonville and Orange Park joints are doing…what I do know, is that Maggie Moo’s ice cream is amazingly delicious.
Let me wrap this up for you,
Jeff Eats loved MaggieMoo’s. Its ice cream is delicious.
