Hattie Jane’s officially opens this week in downtown Murfreesboro. Join them for their ribbon cutting on March 22 at 11:00 a.m.

This is the second location for the small-batch ice cream shop — which boasts inspired, homemade flavors that frequently use local ingredients — the first of which opened next door to the Puckett’s Gro. in downtown Columbia, Tenn. last summer. The Murfreesboro creamery launched its soft opening to the public last week and has experienced a steady stream of customers despite the inclement weather.

“We actually had the second location for Hattie Jane’s mapped out before the first even opened,” said Andy Marshall, CEO of A. Marshall Family Foods. “When we saw the space for Puckett’s in Murfreesboro last Spring, the layout was perfect for another Hattie Jane’s. We have already seen how Rutherford County is embracing our presence on the square, and it’s really exciting to be part of the area’s recent growth.”

Marshall is the co-owner of the creamery along with his daughter, Claire Crowell, who is Chief Operating Officer of A. Marshall Family Foods and whose three year old, Hattie Jane, is the concept’s namesake.

“Ice cream and desserts are our family’s ‘thing,’” Crowell said. “We enjoy traveling together and our trips always include scoping out the best ice cream shops. It’s a comfort food for us, and it’s special to be able to share that with two communities that we love.”

Unique to the Murfreesboro location is its full-service coffee bar, which offers everything from a regular cup of joe to an affogato — a scoop of ice cream topped with espresso. Regularly utilizing local ingredients and resources whenever possible, Hattie Jane’s enlisted the staff of Columbia-based Muletown Coffee — whose beans are used in the creamery’s popular Mulekick flavor — to train its baristas.

Hattie Jane’s Creamery, located at 116 N. Church St. in Murfreesboro, will be open weekly on Sunday from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.  Several of its flavors are also offered on the menus of Puckett’s Boat House and Scout’s Pub, both in Franklin, Tenn., Homestead Manor in Thompson’s Station, and Puckett’s Gro. in Columbia and Murfreesboro, both of which neighbor the creamery’s two locations.
