Hello friends, typically winter is a time to hibernate and slow down. But in the world of ice cream, it's the opposite. Yes, we have a chance to catch our breath and relax but we also have the time and space to think about what's next. And what's next is super exciting!

NEW STORE ALERT!

We are continuing to grow in traditional ways by adding new locations, starting on January 27, Leona's will be available at Pizzuvio Neapolitan Pizza on Forbes Ave. downtown Pittsburgh. The guys behind the acclaimed Il Pizzaiolo in Mt. Lebanon and Warrendale, are serving a pared down menu of authentic Neapolitan pizzas, street food and antipasti. We are proud to partner with them. 

                                                                                                     

GROWING OUR OWN

We are also growing in a more literal way. Leona's is turning a vacant lot into an Ice Cream Garden. With the help of Wilkinsburg CDC, Community LIFE East End and Eichenlaub, we are turning a vacant lot into an Ice Cream Garden.  Rather than let it collect trash, we thought we'd put it to good use and grow some of the ingredients while beautifying a stretch of Penn Ave.  We're working with our Wilkinsburg neighbors, Technique Architectural Products to build a beautiful fence for the space (plans pictured) and will keep you updated as we make progress.
