Gourmet popsicle shop pops up in the Beechmont neighborhood
A corner that once had bad taste now sells something sweet.
A corner that once had bad taste now sells something sweet. A specialty popsicle shop has popped up at Woodlawn and Southern Parkway in the Beechmont neighborhood.
The blighted corner used to be an auto repair business with an enormous amount of code violations. Neighbors say it left a bad taste in their mouths, until a local family gave them a treat by buying the lot and turning it into Cocoberry Pops.
“The neighborhood kept saying we don’t want that garage here. We want something good here,” said Bipin Kachhadiya, the owner of Cocoberry Pops.
The lot was entirely transformed from the ground up.
“[We have] a new parking lot, everything [is] new inside, the plumbing, electric, heat and air,” Kachhadiya said.
Cocoberry Pops sells homemade gourmet popsicles made from fresh and natural ingredients.
“We make all of our products here in the kitchen,” he said. “We are making mango cream today.”
As Kachhadiya mixes up new recipes, he passes out review forms to hear what customers think. A customer once said he didn’t like sugar, so Kachhadiya made a sugar free pop.
“I’m really glad I’m in this neighborhood, and they're also happy this corner has something new," he said.
Cocoberry Pops is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. Pops are $3 each, or you can buy four pops for $11.
