@ Loves Local x Cherry On Top Ice Cream Shoppe in Bartlett

With warmer temperatures on the horizon, it’s time for the treat of summer: ice cream. We’re thrilled to be bringing @ Loves Local to Bartlett’s Cherry On Top Ice Cream Shoppe on Monday, April 19th!

Mariangela Bolognini, owner and Bartlett native, started Cherry On Top Ice Cream Shoppe to bring family and friends together, as well as support her community. It seems she chose a great way to do it! With a variety of flavors (and eye-catching flavor names!), Bolognini has made her shoppe stand out.

@properties: What inspired you to open Cherry On Top Ice Cream Shoppe?

Mariangela Bolognini: As a little kid ice cream was a must at least once a week! I personally wanted to open a business that I could help contribute to the community with; sponsor sports teams and help schools with fundraising. Be a place for families to spend time together and friends to see each other. Our chalkboard walls are meant for the little kids to doodle all over with. They seem to love it!

@properties: Your shop is located in Bartlett. Was there anything in particular that drew you to this neighborhood?

MB: Bartlett is actually my hometown. I have lived here since I was a little girl. In fact I grew up right across the street from where my location is now.

@properties: We noticed you have quite a few unique flavors on the menu. What inspires you to come up with innovated flavors like Iced LatteDa?

MB: We choose the flavors we have because we felt they set us above other ice cream shoppes and make us unique. Names are eye catching, and the flavors are memorable. We have something for everyone and anyone to try.

@properties: In your opinion, what is a must try?

MB: Some of our biggest hits are Exhausted Parent(Bourbon spiked espresso), Zanizibar (triple chocolate), This $&@! Just got Serious (sea salt Caramel with chocolate fudge and cashews) and Banana Cream Pie (Banana Ice cream with marshmallow and Nilla Wafers!)
