Changing Lives One Scoop at a Time

The Golden Scoop is a life changing, non-profit ice cream and coffee shop. We provide innovative and meaningful employment for individuals with developmental disabilities and delicious ice cream and coffee to the Kansas City community. Every scoop of our made-from-scratch ice cream, cup of coffee, or inspired event is carefully designed to bring joy and purpose to the lives of all involved!

The Golden Scoop Ice Cream & Coffee Shop in Overland Park, Kansas

The Golden Scoop is an ice cream and coffee shop with a purpose. We create jobs for very talented individuals who happen to live with developmental disabilities. Our shop is a wonderful space to share with friends. Our events are fun and create unique ways to bring the Kansas City community together.

Unlike any other ice cream shop in town, our Super Scoopers are involved in every aspect of what we do: from marketing and merchandising to creating ice cream flavors and serving our community. The Golden Scoop is proud to provide innovative, meaningful and paid work for our employees.

We offer more than just great ice cream and coffee. The Golden Scoop and our Super Scoopers are changing lives throughout Kansas City, one scoop at a time. We look forward to meeting you and hope to become your favorite ice cream and coffee shop!

Ice Cream Socials


We believe the best way to support The Golden Scoop is to visit us in person at our store. We understand this is not always a feasible option for all groups, so we have created our signature Ice Cream Socials.

These events are a perfect way to celebrate your employees, neighbors, school groups and more!

Ice Cream Social Packages begin at $5.00 per serving

· This includes pre-scooped cream containers, toppings and utensils

· Three ice cream flavor varieties of your choice

· Additional products including coffee and cookies are available as well. Costs will vary

· If you would like to have a Super Scooper speak or would like your event to be staffed, the cost will be $50.00 (1-3 staff members, depending on size)

Delivery fee: $30.00 within 30 miles of The Golden Scoop. For delivery outside this range, please contact us.

To schedule an Ice Cream Social please contact Kristina Hughey, Assistant Manager and Event Coordinator: or 913-283-8044.

At this time, Ice Cream Socials are available to groups of 75 or larger. We welcome smaller orders- to discuss delivery/ pickup of our ice cream, please contact us.

To ensure we are able to provide the best experience available, we ask you try to schedule your Ice Cream Social at least 2-3 weeks in advance.

The Golden Scoop also provides private Ice Cream Socials at our shop. Please contact us to discuss hosting a private party. Rentals begin at $500.00

Ice Cream Socials are an essential part of The Golden Scoop. These events provide a wonderful opportunity for our Super Scoopers to gain real life work experience outside the store. They also provide vital funding for our organization. A portion of these event costs are tax deductible. Please ask for more information.

For additional corporate giving opportunities, please contact Anne Baker Geisler, Director of Development at: or 763-438-7090

Due to ongoing supply chain challenges, substitutions may be made at our discretion without notice.


Get Involved with The Golden Scoop

The Golden Scoop is very appreciative for the work of our volunteers.

We look forward to hearing from you and having you be a part of the effort to provide meaningful employment for our “Super Scoopers.”
