Wicked Local – By Heather Beasley Doyle
Thinking ahead to Patriots’ Day, if you venture out to the Lexington parade, you might want to take along a little extra cash—and some space in your stomach, too. If all goes as planned, Abbott’s Frozen Custard will open its first Lexington store in mid-April, “before Patriots’ Day,” according to franchise owner and Lexington resident Jason Denoncourt.
Abbott’s will move into the space at 1853 Mass. Ave. vacated in the summer of 2015 by Candy Castle, which had been there for more than three decades. The frozen custard establishment will be Abbott’s third in Massachusetts.
Construction on the location, owned by Linear Retail, should begin this week, Denoncourt said. It should take about six to eight weeks. From there, he plans to “hire staff and get it all up and running.” For now, the store’s windows are plastered with images of frozen custard cones and the Abbott’s logo, concealing the interior of the space.
