Marble Slab Creamery, a build-your-own ice cream parlor, will open on Central Avenue in Plaza Midwood by summertime.

Background: This is local franchise owner Ryan Griffith’s seventh location in the Carolinas, but it’s special, he says, because he’s a resident of the neighborhood and close friends with the former Nova’s Bakery owners.
• “It was hard to see them go,” Griffith says, but he feels fortunate to keep the building’s character alive. “Having a corner spot in Plaza Midwood is a pretty unique situation.”

Menu: Marble Slab will have about 50 flavors of ice cream with unlimited toppings you can mix in, similar to Cold Stone Creamery.
• There will also be ice cream cakes, banana splits, hot fudge sundaes, cookie cakes and ice cream cookie sandwiches.
• Customers will be able to order from a takeout window or dine inside.

Space: Griffith says the 1,500-square-foot space will keep some of the existing design elements, but will be modernized with a “cake walk” and assembly line of toppings so it’s easy to see what you’re ordering.

Timing: Because of the seasonal nature of the ice cream business, Griffith is aiming for a May or June opening for Marble Slab, just in time for summer.
