If one door closes another door opens, as the old adage goes, and Sweet Jane’s Frozen Desserts is following just that logic, as it closes its doors in October and looks for a new location.

The ice cream shop, which opened for the first time in May 2014 at 27-17 24th Avenue, offers a wide array of homemade frozen desserts, including non-dairy and gluten free options. The shop is best known, however, for its FudgeStickle, a chocolate ice cream bar.

Owner Jane McGinn explained that due to disputes with her landlord, she is leaving her current location, saying it would be “too difficult with the terms and conditions set forth to have a functioning business in the winter.”

McGinn said she hopes to stay nearby her old location. “It’s been a fantastic location and experience, and the community has been incredibly supportive,” she said.

Despite the change in location, McGinn said that her products would stay the same. She added that if the opportunity arose, she would like to find a space that would allow her to also serve coffee and give her a bit more flexibility in the food products she sold.

Though she has not yet found a new location, McGinn said she plans to open back up at the end of this winter, sometime in the spring of 2017.

Until then, those craving her signature FudgeStickles should keep their eyes out in the grocery store, as she plans to have them on the shelves early next year.
