BARBOURVILLE — If you’ve got a sweet tooth, All Day CRAVEings is the place for you.
Four years ago, Scot and Monica Clouse started selling gourmet shaved ice out of a food truck at events around Barbourville.
“Then, in May, we opened an ice cream store to expand our offerings and to stay open year round,” said Monica.
CRAVE opened on the Square in downtown Barbourville earlier this year, offering ice cream, shakes, shaved ice and floats, while continuing to offer gourmet shaved ice in its food truck at different events.
“Through the winter, we started expanding our baked good items to try to extend our hours for the ice cream store and we were limited on space and we had lots of requests for different things, so we decided to open a bakery or more like a donut store,” Monica said.
All Day CRAVEings opened last month in the Union Plaza Shopping Center in Barbourville, offering fresh baked donuts, muffins, cookies, coffee and much more. Monica said the bakery will soon be adding breakfast items to its menu, as well.
“Everything to do with ice cream, you can get on the Square but we have a different customer base here and it’s a bigger spot for offering lots of different things,” said Monica.
All Day CRAVEings also offers the convenience of a drive-thru.
“It’s been great — the community has came out and really supported us,” Monica said of the first few weeks of business. “We’re very pleased.”
Monica said Crave on the Square will remain open during the winter but will have limited hours and will open back up full time in the spring. All Day CRAVEings will keep its regular hours all throughout the year.
On Thursday morning, the Clouses celebrated the grand opening of All Day CRAVEings with a ribbon cutting ceremony, surrounded by friends, family and members of the Knox County Chamber of Commerce.
To celebrate the grand opening, All Day CRAVEings will be offering $2 off a dozen donuts until January.
All Day CRAVEings is located at 101 Union Street in the Union Plaza Shopping Center in downtown Barbourville. The bakery is open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
