Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream To Open In San Diego La Jolla

June 9, 2023

The eleventh San Diego County location of Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream will open later this year in La Jolla.

Handel's was founded in the summer of 1945 by Alice Handel, who started the company at her husband's gas station in Youngstown, Ohio, serving ice cream made using fresh fruit from her home garden. Handel’s now has more than 50 location around the United States with San Diego-based branches in Pacific Beach, Del Mar, San Marcos, Santee, Carlsbad, National City, Oceanside, Hillcrest, and Chula Vista, with an additional outpost in development for the SDSU College Area.

The newest San Diego Handel's location will open within The Shops at La Jolla Village. Like other branches, the new outpost will offer a variety of over 100 flavors of homemade ice cream and yogurt made fresh daily, one batch at a time, at each location. Local Handel's franchise owner Josh Barton will oversee this location.

Handel’s is anticipated to open in late 2023 at 8861 Villa La Jolla Drive, Unit #507, in San Diego's La Jolla. For more information visit handelsicecream.com.
