Gofer Franchise Systems LLC announced the opening of its Gofer Ice Cream location in Westport on Tuesday, Sept. 6.
Located at 1240 Post Road East, the new business is the company's eighth location.
“The newest Gofer Franchise location was carefully selected to serve the Westport community in its oldest neighborhood area, Greens Farm, next to many schools and ballfields,” Gofer Ice Cream CEO Jay Ragusa said. “The site has ample parking, good visibility, and great neighboring tenants like Fortuna’s Deli which has been serving the community for over 40 years and has a great following.
"Westport is one of the final missing pieces of the Gold Coast footprint where Gofer has been operating and growing since 2003."
The company said a grand opening will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10.
The event will feature giveaways, music, free ice cream samples, and more.
Gofer Ice Cream shops are also located in Stamford, Ridgefield, New Canaan, and more. Find the full list of locations here.
Gofer Franchise Systems said a second Stamford location is currently being constructed, and additional locations are in development.
