The Houston Heights-based Fat Cat Creamery has added a new location to expand its offerings.

Fat Cat will hold a grand opening Nov. 14 for the new space at 1225 W. 34th St., Houston, in the Stomping Grounds at the Garden Oaks development.


The new location will debut with five new flavors. The location includes a 1,000-square-foot kitchen that will be used to support the brand's growing wholesale business, according to a news release. The new space also features a 320 square-foot patio area, and the development itself offers an expansive outdoor gathering space.

“Opening our first location in the Heights was a dream come true, and our Garden Oaks location in the Stomping Grounds is such an exciting next step,” said Sarah Johnston, founder and owner of Fat Cat Creamery, in the release. “We love our community so much and are grateful to bring more sweetness into the world with our expansion.”

Founded in 2011, Fat Cat Creamery opened its Heights location in 2013.
