Homemade ice cream is coming to South Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, TN (WATER) – Cool off this summer heat with delicious ice cream.

Sugar Queen Creamery officially opened two weeks ago and has had revolving doors ever since.

This unique South Knoxville ice cream parlor is family-owned and homemade, from ice cream to pretzels and even brownies for their sundaes.

Co-owner Staci Meyer is originally from Indiana and remembers growing up around the glaciers around every corner. She says it’s an essential part of her childhood and knew Knoxville was the place to bring the same happiness. Meyer and her sisters, along with their mother, opened their new ice cream shop on June 25e just off the Chapman Highway.

The family business originally operated out of a food truck selling donuts and pretzels, but is now thrilled to be in its first storefront.

Meyer says working with all of her family certainly has its challenges, but they all have certain things they do to keep the store running. Their mother is the cooking expert, using her own recipes for all the baked goods and ice cream sold in the store. Meyer’s two sisters handle the design commissions, while Meyer herself focuses on the business aspects. She says it all comes together to create a fun work environment. Their father even helped make their tables and chairs as well as the landscaping around the store.
