The third Comfy Cow location in town opened this week at 2221 Frankfort Ave. “We’re just so excited about this location,” says co-owner Tim Koons-McGee.
The ice cream shop’s two other locations are at Westport Village and Cardinal Towne near the University of Louisville. “It was our original business plan … (to be on) lower Frankfort,” says Koons-McGee. “Then this was supposed to be second, but UofL opened sooner. It’s come full circle.”
The shop is housed in a rehabilitated pastel pink Queen Anne that’s been involved in much controversy — and that nearly burned down twice, according to Koons-McGee. Though original plans were to locate the shop in the old Genny’s Diner previously located next door, that didn’t work out, and the building was demolished.
“It seemed like the right thing to do. We love old houses,” says Koons-McGee. “I’ve fallen in love with the house. Even if you don’t want ice cream, I really want people to see what we’ve done with the house.”
This Comfy Cow offers the same menu as the other locations and is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and till 11 p.m. on weekends. More information: http://thecomfycow.com or (502) 409-4616.
