Lincoln ice cream makers scoop significant expansion

Not just for summer: A large investment will help ice-cream parlour Daisy Made become a year round family day out with a new menu and extended cafe.

A significant investment by Lincoln ice cream makers Daisy Made will see a 49% expansion in its floor space, as well as a new menu and an Orangery-style snug for customers.

The company, which started out selling its home made ice-cream in what was effectively a summerhouse on Lincoln Road, just off the A46, continues to grow as the new investment sees its building nearly double in size.

Expansion works will include a bigger kitchen with new equipment, allowing the company to expand and improve upon its current food menu to attract customers all year round, and not just when the sun is shining.

The new menu will include breakfast baps, omelettes, pancakes, a wider selection of cakes and of course real dairy ice cream sundaes.

The cafe will be refurbished and redecorated to provide a fresh new look and the drive-thru will also be extended to include a second hatch.

Daisy Made will remain open for business during the refurbishment and work is expected to be completed in early March.

To celebrate the completion of the expansion, the company will be hosting an open weekend for customers to sample the new menu with free teas and coffees and a limited number of balloons for children.

Matt Scarborough owner of Daisy Made Ice Cream said: “The expansion is our chance to offer something back to our customers, who have helped us grow for the last 24 years since we opened our doors in 1992.

“With a refurbished cafe, a bigger and better serving area, and an expanded food menu, we want to improve our service during those manic summer days, but also offer a cosy and pleasant environment to enjoy a coffee and a cake when the weather dips.

“The ethos of the business won’t change though – good fun, good food and home made real dairy ice cream all enjoyed on the farm.”
