One of Redwood City's most beloved ice cream shops will celebrate its grand "re-opening" celebration this Saturday - and the store's new owner hopes all will come.
A long-time fan of the Baskin Robbins brand, new franchisee Kurt Smith is re-opening the ice cream specialty store in Redwood City to share the Baskin Robbins experience and its popular ice cream, cakes and frozen treats with the community.
To thank community members for their support, Smith will be donating $250 to Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department at the store’s grand re-opening event Saturday, to help support health and fitness activities for local youth in the community.
"People love the wide variety of flavors offered at Baskin Robbins, and show such great support for the brand," said new Redwood City franchisee, Smith. "I look forward to sharing my love of Baskin Robbins with the local community, and supporting Redwood City's Parks, Recreation and Community Services at the grand re-opening event."
Those who come to Saturday's event will be treated to face painting, balloon twisting, live entertainment, giveaways and special deals.
The celebration will take place from 12 to 4 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Baskin Robbins store, located at 2107 Roosevelt Ave. A special ribbon cutting ceremony with members of the Redwood City Council will take place at 1 p.m.
