A new frozen custard shop is set to open in southwest Columbia. The Scoop Frozen Custard Shoppe will be open by May 1, owner Randy Minchew said.

Located at 2001 Corona Road, the eatery will be run by Minchew, his wife, Cindy, and their two daughters, Susan, 21, and Samantha, 18.

Besides frozen custard, The Scoop Frozen Custard Shoppe will also offer other desserts, such as cheesecake and a variety of pies. A lunch menu with sandwiches and subs and a coffee bar will also be included.

Located in the Village of Cherry Hill, the shop will be more than 2,000-square feet and able to seat 60 people. Outdoor seating will also be available in the patio area.

The village, off Scott Boulevard and Chapel Hill Road, is a community of walkable streets, businesses and houses. The custard store will be across the street from Cherry Hill’s park.

“We just like the ambiance and feel of Cherry Hill,” Minchew said.

Cindy Minchew’s family is in the restaurant business in Texas, and Randy Minchew owns Swift Windows Doors and More in Columbia.

The Scoop Frozen Custard Shoppe will be open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.
