Bruster’s Real Ice Cream gets ready to start construction on the first of multiple local outposts nearly 19 months after first announcing plans to expand to Las Vegas.

The Bruster’s ice cream menu uses a home-style mix made daily to prevent “ice crystals from forming” across its full roster of 150 flavors that originally launched in Bridgewater, Pennsylvania, in 1990.

Construction begins soon on its Spring Valley drive-thru ice cream shop, building on a vacant plot of land close to The Lakes at the intersection of Durango Drive and Edna Avenue.

The 1,900-square-foot restaurant will include a 630-square-foot indoor seating section, an open area for staff to prepare sundaes, and a large kitchen that will also create all the in-house cakes, pies, and waffle cones.

The Bruster’s menu features freezes, floats, and shakes; apple dumpling, strawberry shortcake, and turtle sundaes; and a long list of ice cream choices, including coffee cake streusel, Death by Chocolate, eggnog, and red velvet cake batter. Every cone or dish can get a candy eyes upgrade.

An estimated debut date or future opening hours have not been announced.
