The long-awaited announcement revealing the opening date of the first Lubbock Braum's Ice Cream store has finally come.

According to a press release from Braum's, the location at 7910 Milwaukee Avenue will open at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020.

The release includes a statement from President and CEO of the company, Drew Braum that reads in part: "We are excited to be in Lubbock finally and cannot wait to be up and running."

Dates for the ribbon cutting and Grand Opening Celebration Week have not been released and are on hold for now to observe social distancing at stores, according to the release.

The release went on to include that "a second Braum’s location will open nearby in Wolfforth in June, followed by the third location at 8217 University Avenue in Lubbock in July." So if you don't get into the first location to open, it will soon be followed by the openings of the remaining two locations in the area.

I don't know about you, but I can already hear a collective "hooray!" from the entire community of Lubbock. After all, ice cream makes everything better.
