Mister Fitz Is Opening Two New Queensland Parlours

Did you scream for more ice cream sandwiches? You got 'em.

Time flies when you're eating ice cream sandwiches. Just five short months ago, Mister Fitz was the new kid on the dessert block. Now, Damian Griffiths' chilly wonderland is one of the city's favourite purveyors of frozen goodness — and they're growing.

Not content with serving up their insane ice cream and cookie creations in Fortitude Valley and South Brisbane, Mister Fitz is adding two more Queensland stores to the fold. In six to eight weeks, East Brisbanites will be able to gorge on epic concoctions at 55 Lytton Street, while Gold Coast residents can head to The Strand precinct in Coolangatta.

Yep, if pink sea salt and caramel ice cream smashed between two crunchy biscuits gets your tastebuds tingling — or the winning combo of banana, brown sugar and bacon, perhaps? — you'll now be able to get your fix at two extra locations. The same jam-packed menu will be on offer at both new outlets, including Mister Fitz's signature hip hop-themed milkshakes. Fancy a Boom! Shake the Room with Nutella ice cream, anyone?

Given the breakneck pace at which the ice creamery's sibling brand — aka fellow Griffiths'-owned venture Doughnut Time — has taken over the country over the last year, Mister Fitz's aggressive expansion regime is far from surprising. And with a couple of Sydney shops also in the works, plus plans to open in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, it's only a matter of time before ice cream sandwiches replace doughnuts as the nation's sweet treat of choice.

Find Mister Fitz at 1 Little Street, Fortitude Valley and Grey Street, South Bank — and keep an eye on their website, Facebook and Instagram for more info on their East Brisbane and Coolangatta expansion plans.
