For the last five years, Rochester residents and guests alike have enjoyed what has to be considered, arguably, Rochester's best ice cream being served from Flapdoodles in northwest Rochester. Now, those in the southern part of town can rejoice because a second location is coming imminently!

Work is nearly completed on a new Flapdoodles on South Broadway at 17th Street SE. One block south of the Olmsted County Fairgrounds, this one looks as though it could be a bit larger than the original location off of 37th Street NW. And like the original, the new spot will include a drive-thru ice cream ordering window.

There's no word on the Flapdoodles Facebook page as to exactly when the new store will be open, and the latest note on their website claims that it was "opening this spring." It's now summer and the new Flapdoodles south isn't open yet. But, from the looks of the progress on the new building, it should be happening very soon!

With summer in full swing, it seems like the perfect time to get the second location rolling!

What do you think? Are you excited for the second Flapdoodles location to open here in Rochester?
