Few days back, I’ve told you about closing of Chaman Ice cream in Bahria Town Lahore. Well they have opened their shop today. It is pretty much empty today. They are also missing some of their most running ice cream flavors. Moreover their bakery space is also empty right now.
According to Chaman Ice cream; they were doing their routine business. Punjab Food Authority came to their factory and outlets to check the ice cream on monthly bases. Do their formality work and give them clean chit.
This time Punjab Food Authority came to the outlets and directly close it without any testing. They took the samples and seal their outlets until the results of ice cream came out. Punjab Food Authority kept the Chaman Ice cream closed for almost two weeks and now they have given approval today to reopen the shops.
Owner of Chaman Ice cream was pretty much annoyed because of this unlawful action by Punjab Food Authority. Well this is the Chaman side of story.
Flavors Not Available
Most favorite three flavors; Pista Badam, Kulfa and Pistachio is not available right now. According to Chaman, these flavors are in production and will be in shops within couple of days. Meanwhile you can enjoy with other flavors of Chaman Ice Cream.
Chaman Ice cream is closed from a long time. Firstly I thought that there business is not running in Bahria Town Lahore so they have planned to shut down their branch.
I was in this confusion but then I get to know that Punjab Food Authority has closed all Chaman branches.
It won’t be wrong if I say that ‘Chaman is one of the most famous ice cream of Pakistan’ This was the product we can proud at. They were suppose to maintain the quality and focus on cleanliness.
Hope to see them back in business soon with maintaining good quality.
4 days back a new ice-cream shop by the name of ‘Ice curl’ has opened in Bahria Town. Ice-curl opened its first branch at Fortress square almost 2-3 years ago and its second branch is in Emporium Mall. It is quite different and noteworthy among other names. The reason is that it is made right in front of your eyes and you’re also be able to choose your own flavor.
Moreover, Ice-curl capture this idea basically from Thailand but all of their flavors and ingredients are from Pakistan. When it first opened in Fortress square mall, Ice curl generated a very positive response and same in Emporium mall. Ice curl also faced approving response in Bahria town at the time of opening. They have also provided free ice-cream for first two days of opening. Now, this offer isn’t valid and there is no discount offer.
Ice curl in Bahria town is located at 19-CC sector D near to Mcdonalds.
2:00 pm to 12:00 am.
Yes you read it right! Finally McDonald’s is coming to Bahria Town Lahore. It is one of the brand we all have been waiting for. I like it because of it’s ice cream. Moreover they really have clean kitchen and deliver clean food.
When To Start:
It is heard that they are planning to launch their Bahria branch on New Year Eve. It seems to be a really tough target because we have only 12 days left. Though they working day and night and they have built the above building within days.
Let’s see if it’s true and they really start their branch on New Year Eve.
Effect On Commercial Property:
McDonald’s branch has also effect the rise in prices of commercial nearby. 2 marla commercial of CC block has raised from 8 million to 15 million only because of McDonald’s. However prices have settle down on 13 to 14 million right now. This is a very high price for a 2 marla commercial plot.
I believe if commercial size would be nearly 4 or 5 marla, then it could be a better option for other brands to jump in. I don’t think that any international food chain will start their outlet in just 2 marla commercial. So I guess this raise is temporarily and price will fell down a bit more.
