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!

As Featured On

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!
