The Valley is in for a major cool-down when Sloan’s Ice Cream opens this fall in Topanga. Residents and visitors can take in the irresistible sights, smells, tastes, and sounds of Sloan’s Ice Cream, a Willy Wonka-esque paradise.
An iconic sweet retreat widely known for its colorful presence throughout South Florida, Sloan’s is making its highly anticipated arrival to the San Fernando Valley. The truly unique concept combining innovative ice cream flavors with eye-catching store elements, including one-of-a-kind pink and neon green walls and signage, as well as seemingly endless amounts of candy, pastries and toys, will make its celebrated Los Angeles area arrival at The Village at Westfield Topanga.
“We could not be more excited to be expanding into Los Angeles,” says Sloan Kamenstein, CEO and founder of Sloan’s Ice Cream. “After seeing the reaction from fans who have been able to enjoy our treats in San Diego, we knew Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley was the perfect spot for our next California location.”
Sloan’s Ice Cream will be a welcome addition to The Village at Westfield Topanga’s new open-air luxury shopping, dining, events, entertainment and leisure destination. The Village at Westfield Topanga is set to open in September.
Since the inception of its first store in 1999, Sloan’s Ice Cream has become a bright pink icon, with six locations in Palm Beach County, Florida, and one location in San Diego, California. Guests can also enjoy the vibrant rainbow of toys and candy that line the walls and send the senses soaring. Plus, the enticing aroma of fresh-baked waffle cones ready to be stuffed with more than 50 original flavors, like Coffee and Donut—smooth coffee ice cream combined with loads of Krispy Kreme glazed donut—and Mom’s Apple Pie—apple pie ice cream with bits of homemade apple pie—make every visit to Sloan’s a memory to savor.
“Simply put, we created Sloan’s to be a dreamland for everyone—kids and adults of all ages—and our focus has never changed,” says Kamenstein, who trained at London’s Le Cordon Bleu culinary school, as well as in a variety of kitchens throughout France. “We’re thrilled about building on our huge following in Florida and San Diego. Sloan’s has a bright future in Los Angeles.”
Kamenstein has no doubt that continued growth throughout California is the next phase in continuing to bring Sloan’s Ice Cream shops to desirable venues nationwide for more of America to enjoy.
“It’s about taking the next step in creating a successful brand,” Kamenstein says. “We’ve been privileged to serve South Florida for a long time, and San Diego more recently. Now, we feel equally as fortunate to bring the same level of distinction to the Valley.”
