About Us

The Golden Scoop concept has been in the making since 2018. We are modeled after two successful companies centered on employing people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, we just married the two ideas!

We envision a world where people with special needs are set up for success and belong to a community where everyone’s gifts are valued. Top that off with a menu of culinarily-exquisite homemade ice creams and a signature KC coffee blend, and you’ve got an experience like no other.

The Golden Scoop's mission is to provide meaningful employment for people with developmental disabilities; to foster an environment where our employees are mentored, inspired, and equipped to succeed in their jobs and their lives; to offer amazing made-from-scratch products; and to provide an inclusive, joyful customer experience that keeps people coming back for another scoop.
