Summary

Gwendolyn Louise Smith, dba Lula’s Frozen Treats, was awarded an $18,000 Inner City Economic Development (ICED) Loan to help remodel the interior, add a patio and install ADA compatible restrooms at 1750 Frayser Boulevard. Total project costs are estimated to be $37,211.

Lula’s Frozen Treats, named for Ms. Smith’s mother, will be an ice cream shop designed to appeal to children. It will have a bright, colorful interior, and an outdoor seating area. The shop is intended to be a neighborhood destination year-round, offering a fun, safe and family friendly atmosphere.

The loan will help Ms. Smith renovate a 1,200 square foot space in the 1963 building and hire two employees. The location requires conversion from an office space to a restaurant space. This includes a plumbing upgrade and wall reconfiguration in addition to exterior improvements. Once the project is complete, this long vacant property will be 100% occupied with a barber school, dentist office and law office as neighbors. The project is supported by the Frayser Exchange Club.
