Ice cream and donut store Drip N’ Scoop is hoping to open this summer, after work was held up over the fall and winter, according to one of the owners.
“We are hopefully on track for a Spring / Summer opening,” Robert Idell Jr said in a social media message. Weather delays have held the project up, along with the government shutdown which slowed the process of getting a Small Business Administration loan, Idell said.
Ocean City-based Drip N’ Scoop announced plans to expand to Atlantic City and Somers Point last summer, but building work at the new sites has been slow.
Drip N’ Scoop is owned by HMRXGroup, which also operates Sunrise Cafe in Ocean City.
