Palo Alto's Tin Pot Creamery expanding

Uploaded: Nov 14, 2016
UPDATE: Tin Pot opened its Campbell location with limited hours as of March 16, 2017.

Palo Alto-born ice cream shop Tin Pot Creamery is expanding, with two additional locations set to open in Campbell and San Mateo next year.

Former Facebook pastry chef Becky Sunseri opened the first Tin Pot in 2013 at Town & Country Village. A second outpost in downtown Los Altos followed the next year.

Sunseri said she chose Campbell and San Mateo because "they are great communities we want to be a part of, are far enough away from the other two locations to be distinct markets, and presented great opportunities for storefront locations."

The Campbell location will tentatively open in February at The Pruneyard Shopping Center. San Mateo will come next at a new development, Bay Meadows, in the spring.

The menus will be similar to the Palo Alto and Los Altos Tin Pots. The main difference, Sunseri said, is that they will have seating inside.

"Many customers have asked for it and we think it'll create an even more comfortable and homey atmosphere for people to enjoy their ice cream treats," she wrote in an email.

She kept it vague when asked if she’s planning any further expansion: "We love scoop shops and being part of communities in the area, and always looking for new opportunities!"
Community.
What is it worth to you?
