NIPOMO, Calif. - Doc Burnstein's is expanding to another Central Coast location, but the popular ice cream shop is branching out to something different.
The locally owned business confirms it will soon open a chocolate factory in Nipomo. There's no word yet on where it will be located yet.
However, it is the latest expansion for the company, which just opened a new store this past weekend in Chico in Northern California.
Unlike other Doc Burnstein's shops, the Nipomo chocolate factory site will not sell ice cream to the public.
But not to worry, if you do have a craving for ice cream, you can still get it at Doc Burnstein's other locations here in Santa Maria, as well as Arroyo Grande, and San Luis Obispo.
