Sprinklz opens second shop

At the northwest corner of Ken’s Korner in Clinton, Sprinklz Ice Cream shop owner Jennifer Krouse is busy opening her second location with ice cream, snack food, games and toys, just in time for summer.

The brightly lit location is already proving popular with both local residents and tourists in what Krouse describes as the “the next hot spot” in South Whidbey. Even though she’s still putting finishing touches on the shop, she has already had many customers, even on weekdays.

“We needed something for the kids to do,” Krouse said. She welcomes young people into the shop with arcade games from Tim Leonard’s Machine Shop in Langley.

“It’s a work in progress, but we are ready to go and fully staffed for summer. It’s a great first job for older teenagers.”

In addition to many flavors of hand-packed ice cream from Cascade Glacier in Bend, Ore., the new Sprinklz features specialties like milkshakes and sundaes and “pub style” foods such as hot dogs and chile.

“We’ve been very busy, and the food offerings are going quite well,” Krouse said.

The ice cream parlor is situated with access from either Highway 525 or Langley Road. The original Sprinklz is in downtown Langley.

The interior of the 1,725-square-foot facility was constructed and fitted by Paul Guzman of RPG Construction, headquartered near Federal Way.

The new shop boasts a long list of ice cream flavors, including the classics and a few that are more unusual — like caramel pretzel, pop rocks and birthday cake.

The shop is open 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and noon to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
