Mama’s Pizza Owner to Open Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Shop
Fifteen years since inheriting the Berry Street location of Mama’s Pizza, Jordan Scott is expanding his culinary repertoire with the addition Creamistry ice cream shop. The 1,200-square-foot store in the Left Bank area off West 7th Street will be located at 628 Harrold St., Ste. 128, and is expected to open in early May.
After a soft opening week, a grand opening celebration will include two hours of free ice cream along with music, a photo booth, games, giveaways and more. A portion of the proceeds from the opening weeks’ sales will benefit nonprofit Communities In Schools of Greater Tarrant County.
“The number one thing I’ve learned as an owner is that great service paired with an outstanding product will drive people to your establishment,” Scott said in the release. “It is truly a joy to be expanding our business to serve dessert to our Fort Worth friends, while keeping the near 50-year tradition of Mama’s Pizza going strong.”
A news release stated that Scott and his wife, Nicole, are partnering with Wes and Patrice Hall for the endeavor, which will bring all-natural, organic, made-to-order ice cream to Fort Worth.
Both baseball players for Texas Wesleyan University in 1994, Scott and Hall spent plenty of time together and often at the original Mama’s on East Rosedale. Scott originally inherited the Mama’s business after the death of his godfather and mentor, Chris Farkas. At that time, he also approached Hall, asking him to join him in expanding the pizza brand.
Today, Mama’s has three company stores – 1813 W. Berry St., 5800 Camp Bowie Blvd. and 1200 N. Fielder in Arlington – along with three franchise locations, including 5811 Bryant Irvin in Fort Worth, 26 E. Debbie Lane in Mansfield and 9100 Boulevard 26 in North Richland Hills.
The pizza partners researched how to add a high-quality dessert product to their portfolio for years before discovering the Creamistry concept via social media.
“With 15 years of restaurant and franchise experience, I knew the Creamistry model would flourish in Fort Worth,” Hall, manager of the Camp Bowie pizza store and operations trainer for Mama’s franchise locations, said in the release. “We’re excited to pair our history of providing a quality product with excellent customer service through an exciting new ice cream concept.”
The release detailed that Creamistry customers will be able to choose a portion size, an ice cream base (premium, organic, coconut or non-dairy sorbet), one of more than 30 flavors and toppings from a list of more than 35 options including candy, cookies and cereal, fruits and sauces.
