Owners Leo and Kim Brosnan opened April of 2016, and enjoy meeting old and new customers who stop in for a frozen treat and to browse the multitude of items for sale.
The ice cream has been quite popular.
“We serve 24 flavors of Hershey’s hand dipped ice cream,” Kim says. “We are the only one in this area serving Hershey’s ice cream. It’s amazing.”
Some of the other offerings include Peanut Butter Cup, Superman, Blue Noon, Strawberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Cappuccino Crunch, and Rock Road, among several others.
“My favorite is Banana Pudding,” Kim says. “Leo’s favorite is our World Famous Fudge. We also have ice cream cakes available, and milkshakes in any ice cream flavor.”
Scoops & Treasures also has root beer floats and sundaes available.
“We also sell hot dogs, coffee, nachos and soft pretzels,” Kim says. “The nachos and pretzels are seasonal. We also have indoor and outdoor seating.”
Scoops & Treasures has more than 20 booths with vendors selling everything from handcrafted jewelry and handmade soaps, to home decor to clothing and socks.
“We have kids boutique items, home décor, signs, bath moos, goat milk lotion, soy candles, bling wallets, school spirit wear, Girlie Girl t-shirts and C.C. hats, vintage clothing, furniture, and fun camping accessories,” Kim adds. “We rent booth space and do commission sales. We also currently have a couple of booth spaces available for rent.”
Scoops & Treasures also has a food trailer and will go to parties, corporate events and festivals.
“We travel to festivals in Johnson and Marion Counties,” Kim says. “We are willing to travel farther. Last year, we went to Greenwood Freedom Fest, WAMM Fest, the IUPUI Chinese Festival, Franklin Fall Fest, and Hops & Vines. We are also going to the same places this year.
“We sell ice cream for graduations, weddings and birthday parties, too. We can take the food trailer to any events. We’ve also done corporate employee parties, and we love events such as Dine to Donate and Spirit Nights.”
Kim says their kids, Molly, 15, and Joey, 12, both work at the shop and at events.
“My parents, Ron and Sharon Paszek, help a lot too,” Kim says. “Dad works at the store occasionally. He’s 80 years old but loves visiting with our customers. My mom has a booth in the shop and helps wherever help is needed as well. My husband, Leo, has family from Michigan, who have also visited the shop.”
When they aren’t at Scoops & Treasures, Leo also works at Enress +Hauser, a leading supplier of products, solution, and services for industrial process, measurement and automation in Greenwood. Kim is an ultrasound technologist and still works part-time at Community South.
“We love it here, and have been lucky to meet so many wonderful customers,” Kim says.
