One of the most popular ice cream shops in the country is planning to open two stores in Austin in the next year, Eater Austin reports.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is based in Ohio, but the brand is familiar to Austinites through its many pop-up appearances during South by Southwest.The first is slated to open later this year in the former Turquoise Door location on South Congress Avenue, and a second location is planned at Rock Rose in the Domain Northside.

The highly visible South Congress location will be considered Jeni's flagship store in Texas, according to Eater, and patrons can expect flavors including pickled mango, frosé sorbet and Texas sheet cake.
