Howdy Homemade West Texas Sets Grand Opening for Lubbock
Back in February, I told you about this new ice cream shop that is coming and also helps create jobs for those with disabilities. Well, we finally know when it's opening.
You might already recognize Howdy Homemade West Texas' ice cream containers from H-E-B. Tom Landis founded Howdy Homemade Ice Cream to create and help make jobs for people with intellectual and developmental abilities. This company was started in 2015 with no plan other than helping people. Now, seven years later, Howdy has 13 stores and employs individuals with developmental disabilities who otherwise may struggle to find work.
According to Howdy, its mission is to have a "relentless pursuit to create jobs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities using the power of smiles and amazing ice cream."
If you're excited to try out their ice cream before they open, you can find it at H-E-B on 114th and Quaker. I've had their ice cream and it's so good. I got the Cold Brew and Cookies because I love chocolate. You definitely have to try it.
Their grand opening will be on July 8th, 2022. To celebrate, they'll be giving away 5,000 pints of ice cream. Sweet -- literally!
You can find out more information about Howdy Homemade Ice Cream and their mission on their official website.
The West End Shopping Center is located at 2910 W Loop 289, Lubbock, Texas. Howdy Homemade Ice Cream will be located in Suite 300.
