JDG Commercial Interior Design Project – Earnest Ice Cream Frances St:
With line ups out the door, Earnest Ice Cream required another production facility to manage the over whelming response to their product. This location consists mostly of production space with 393 sf allocated for a storefront retail ancillary. Half of the production area is for the preparation of ice cream with local fresh ingredients, and the other half is occupied by custom refrigeration. The main challenge for the ancillary was very low ceilings due to a mezzanine above. To install a grander feel into the retail area, it was kept mainly white with small traces of black and natural fir accents. Linear clean lines were played with through the menu rails, shelving, counter front and lighting. Earnest’s trademark swirls were hand painted in black to add interest to the wall of the mezzanine, which can be seen from the outside the store. It’s a modern fresh space to pick up a cone or a pint to go.
