Ice Cream Jubilee has opened its new location in Ballston Quarter’s food hall.
The ice cream store, on the mall’s concourse level, is serving 16 unique flavors of ice cream, ranging from Thai Iced Tea to Honey Lemon Lavender to Banana Bourbon Caramel.
Owner Victoria Lai told ARLnow that she’s been pleasantly surprised by the number of customers they’ve had on their first day. She added that she’s excited to be among Ballston Quarter’s bevy of local food vendors.
“Every single day there’s something new down here,” she said. “There’s so much to look forward to.”
The opening comes at the same time as some other Ballston businesses were experiencing a power outage, across the street from the mall.
Dominion Energy spokesman Chuck Penn said the outage was caused by a nearby car accident and that Dominion crews were on the scene performing repairs.
“We expect to have all that done in about an hour,” Penn said at 2 p.m.
At 12:45 p.m. Dominion’s live outage map showed three customers affected by the outage.
Cava and Philz Coffee, which are both located at 4121 Wilson Blvd, posted signs on their front doors at noon Friday alerting customers they had closed due to the lack of power.
