Is it just us… or is this starting to look like an ice cream shop?!

With just a week to go until the Inzozi Nziza grand opening, we’re very happy (or should that be relieved?) to report on the progress with the shop itself.

It was only two weeks ago that a typical view of our interior looked like this:

So what about now? Can you spot the difference…?

It's the clean, mean ice cream shop of our dreams...!

Get your delicious soft scoop ice cream, freshly made from local ingredients, here!

Of course it’s lovely to have a shop suddenly looking so full… but it doesn’t compare to the joy we felt when our trainees first walked in to see everything in place.

Julienne is first through the door... and we take the smile as a sign of approval!

Do you enjoy a nail-biting, down-to-the-wire finish? Then stay tuned…!
