One of your faves. Loblolly Creamery in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Ice cream fans rejoice! We’ve been compiling the ultimate list of female-owned and/or -fueled ice cream shops across the country and here it is! There are more than 80 businesses, representing over 100 scoop shops, on the list. How did we decide who to include? We asked the Bombesquad to tell us their favorites. We’ll keep updating this list, so if any of your fave scoop shops are missing, DM us on Instagram at @cherrybombemag. Tell us the name of the shop; the name of the owner, co-owner, chef, or pastry chef behind it; and the city where it’s located.

Thanks to everybody in the Bombesquad who tipped us off to these places. And to those of you making beautiful ice cream out there… you’re the bombe! We appreciate all the deliciousness you put into the world.
