The city’s first Carvel(R) Ice Cream-Cinnabon(R) shop will hold its official grand opening celebration Saturday, Feb. 25th , with festivities lasting from 12 – 5 pm, and KHTS AM-1220 will be there!
The Sopranos celebrate birthdays with the cold stuff. Jerry Seinfeld wants to marry the hot stuff. Homer Simpson and Kelly Ripa love it all. And now Santa Clarita residents can enjoy America’s freshest ice cream along with the world’s most famous cinnamon rolls. The store is located at 22880 Copperhill Drive in the Seco Canyon shopping center.
Franchise partners Bert and Tracy Seneca and Anuj and Sarita Bansal have lined up Chamber of Commerce representatives to start the celebration by cutting the grand opening ribbon. Radio personalities from KHTS AM-1220 will broadcast live from 12 – 2 pm and will have a prize wheel for customers to spin. The Senecas and Bansals will give away free Carvel and Cinnabon products throughout the day, and guests who make purchases will be entered in separate raffles for a PlayStation 2 and four tickets to Disneyland.
"We’ve been in business since December, and we’re really excited about kicking things off in a grand way," said Tracy. "We grew up on Carvel ice cream, and we wanted to open a store in our community. Our neighborhood didn’t have a spot for people to hang out, so we thought a Carvel-Cinnabon store would be the perfect location for families to come and have a good time."
The Senecas and Bansals offer Carvel’s famous ice cream cakes and soft serve ice cream, as well as a wide variety of take home novelties and fountain style products, including cups, cones, sundaes, and shakes – all of which are made fresh daily. In addition, they serve Cinnabon’s beloved Classic(R) Rolls, Caramel Pecanbons(R), CinnaPacks(R), CinnabonStix(R), and the new Cinnabon Bites(TM), all of which are made fresh every hour with Makara(R) Cinnamon, the world’s finest spice of this kind. The store also provides CarameLatta Chills(TM), MochaLatta Chills(TM), and Chillattas(TM), Cinnabon’s new line of frozen blended beverages.
Store hours are 6:30 am – 9 pm Monday through Thursday, 6:30 am – 10 pm Friday, 8 am – 10 pm Saturday, and 8 – 9 Sunday. To reach Carvel-Cinnabon of Santa Clarita, please call 661-296-6200.
