CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) — A locally owned, Pennsylvania-based creamery officially opened a new location in Carlisle earlier this week.

Urban Churn, which is owned and operated by Adam Brackbill, confirmed with abc27 back on May 16 that they would be unveiling their third Pennsylvania-based Urban Churn storefront location.

According to Brackbill, the company chose to expand into Carlisle because they discovered through their demographic data that Carlisle residents were frequenting their Mechanicsburg location – additionally, a good leasing opportunity became available in Carlisle, so “it made sense” to open the new location.

The new 2,335-square-foot Carlisle Urban Churn is expected to create about 20 seasonal jobs and 8 to 10 off-season positions as well. According to Brackbill, between the company’s new churning and distribution facilities and the new Carlisle location, Urban Churn now has over 60 employees on its payroll.

The new Urban Churn is located at 258 Westminster Drive in Carlisle, and they held their official grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, May 23. According to Brackbill, the hours of operation for the new Carlisle location will be:

  • Tuesdays – Thursdays // 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Fridays – Saturdays // 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Sundays // 12: p.m. to 8 p.m.

It should be noted that these hours of operation are subject to change during the summer months.

“It’s been a wild ride. From starting off churning behind a cinema in Midtown Harrisburg, surviving through COVID-19 to opening our 2nd and 3rd locations, I’ve learned a lot and am so thankful. We’ve learned a lot through failures and successes, and we’ve grown through partnerships and friends. Urban Churn would not exist if it wasn’t for our community and supporters,” Brackbill said in an email.

According to Urban Churn’s website, their other two other storefronts are located at 1004 North 3rd Street in Harrisburg and 6391 Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg.
