Deja Vu Sandwich Bar has opened Shake “N” S’cream ice cream parlour next to its existing Rose Street premises with a five figure investment.

Shake “N” S’cream offers a selection of 26 flavours of high quality ice cream made locally in Huntly along with their own unique range of shakes.

The company’s most popular Shake so far is “The Rebound” which combines cookie dough ice-cream and Oreo biscuits for anyone to indulge in. As a healthier alternative Shake “N” S’cream also offer a range of fresh fruit smoothies to enjoy as part of your five-a-day.

Roy Duncan, local businessman and owner of Déjà vu Sandwhich Bar has recently made the five figure investment into Shake “N” S’cream.

Roy commented: “The Shake “N” S’cream concept was achieved with the consultation of fifth year pupils from Aberdeen Grammar School who regularly visit Deja Vu. They came up with the idea of the unit next door becoming an ice-cream parlour, which would be more affordable to them as well as using local ice cream from Aberdeenshire. In consultation with these young adults, whom I believe are the future entrepreneurs of Aberdeen, I decided to proceed with opening this store and rewarded their enthusiasm by making them employees of Shake “N” S’cream. For many of them this is their first ever job and I hope they can use the experience they gain working at Shake “N” S’cream to develop their careers or assist with further education.”

“Having previously worked offshore as a Chef I know full well the difficulties facing many businesses in the Aberdeen area, particularly small businesses such as my own. Despite this, I remain confident that we will see a more buoyant market in the years to come and Déjà vu and Shake “N” S’cream, through our strong offering, are uniquely placed to cater for Aberdeen corporates and individuals alike.”

Claire Lyle, manager of Déjà vu and Shake “N” S’cream” added: “Despite only being open a short period of time we have seen Shake “N” S’cream’s popularity growing day by day. Through the use of our facebook pages and word of mouth, customers are becoming aware of our products and the feedback has been very positive. We are open every day from 12-9:30pm.”
