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.

Susan Goldberg, M.A., CCC-SLP
Program Director, Golden Scoop University
Susan was born and raised right down the street from the 9540 Golden Scoop location, moved to Chicago when she was 11, and made a full circle back to KC. She received her bachelor's degree from Indiana University in speech and hearing sciences, then completed a master's degree in speech language pathology from Northwestern University.
After meeting her husband Joel in Chicago and moving to St. Louis, she worked at several schools within the Saint Louis Special School District as a speech language pathologist. She made her way back to KC in 2008 where she worked at Lees Summit School District before spending more than 10 years as an SLP providing on-line speech therapy for students across the country.
Susan and Joel have two college aged children, Mason and Ellie, who both love to visit the Super Scoopers at the shop, and two crazy dogs, Maggie and Sienna. She is beyond thrilled and grateful to continue her professional journey with the amazing Super Scoopers at the Golden Scoop. It truly is her dream job!
