The Golden Scoop, a new ice cream shop in Overland Park that employs individuals with developmental disabilities, is preparing for its long-anticipated grand opening.

The Golden Scoop will open on April 14 for its grand opening, which will feature a raffle that includes a signed Patrick Mahomes jersey, according to The Golden Scoop’s Instagram (@thegoldenscoopkc).

Co-owners Michelle Reeves, Lindsay Krumbholz and Amber Schreiber founded the concept in an effort to take the mission — to provide job skills to individuals with developmental disabilities — of a nonprofit that Reeves and Krumbholz worked for to the next level.
