It’s hard to miss the bright building of Double Dip, an old-fashioned frozen custard shop, when driving down Frisco’s Main Street. But Double Dip is about to move from it’s original location of more than 15 years.

“We’ve been here since 2001 and now we’re moving to a location on Main and Teel,” Double Dip general manager Madison Lowe said. “We don’t own this building, and we’ve been trying to for a while. I think it’s better that we’re moving because this building is old and has had a lot of problems that need fixing.”

Before it was a frozen custard restaurant, the building was occupied by a gas station and later a Dairy Queen, but most current customers only know it as one place.

“Double Dip has been around ever since I moved here,” junior Caroline Chandler said. “I was hoping it wouldn’t move too far from us.”

Plans to move began back in October, but fall’s heavy rainfall pushed back the moving process.

“We were originally supposed to be moving in October but we couldn’t break ground due to bad weather,” Lowe said. “We plan to only be closed for a week and to be back open before the end of April.”

Double Dip tries to help foster the old-fashioned ambiance of downtown, but even with the move, they intend to keep things the same.

“We’ll keep our drive-thru, the colors, music, everything,” Lowe said. “We are hoping to make a few changes though, like bringing in kid’s tables and making more foods like burgers and grilled cheese, a lot of the stuff our customers have been asking for.”

Double Dip can get crowded especially at night, but the new location could mean even more customers.

“Driving down Teel you can see there’s so many other shops and restaurants around the area,” customer David Chandler said. “I think it’ll be good for Double Dip to move down there and get the kind of recognition and amount of customers it deserves.”

The move is intended to be quick, but final dates haven’t been locked down.

“The new building is still being built,” Lowe said. “We don’t have an exact date as to when we’ll be completely settled yet.”
