Hatfield is the brand’s second Hertfordshire venue after Watford, with other locations in the south including Croydon, Basingstoke, Fulham, Alperton, Rayner Lane, Hounslow, Romford, Tooting and Southampton.

Up the road from The Galleria and a short walk from the University of Hertfordshire, the shop is owned and run by Priyanka Dave, Keta Patel and Bina Gadiya.

Owners Keta, Bina and Priyanka have been living in Hatfield for the past six years, often travelling to other Scooperb locations for ice cream and desserts.

A company spokesperson said: “Once they found out Scooperb was offering franchisee opportunities they 100 per cent knew they needed to bring this to Hatfield.”

The Mayor of Welwyn Hatfield, Councillor Pankit Shah, and Mayoress Vaishali Shah had the pleasure of ribbon cutting and opening the new dessert shop, as the first customers queued outside at noon last Saturday.

Cllr Shah said: “As the proud mayor of this vibrant borough, I am delighted to welcome the latest business.

“The arrival of Scooperb is a significant milestone for our town and it brings me great joy to witness the continued growth and development of our local business landscape.

“Hatfield has always been a hub of innovation and the addition of Scooperb only solidifies this reputation. 

“So gather your friends and family and treat yourself to a scoop or two of pure happiness.”

Describing Scooperb’s ethos, a spokesperson said: “We are an aspirational brand, beautifully and innovatively designed and inspired by the beautiful flavours and aromatic spices of South Asia, relating to the founder’s childhood.

“All of the ice creams and desserts are eggless, vegetarian, or vegan. Handcrafted, and churned with very little air, resulting in purer, more robust flavours and the creamiest textures you can find.”



You can find Scooperb Hatfield next to the Co-op store in Bishops Rise, and just down the road from The Cavendish Arms pub.

With seating inside, it is open seven days a week, from noon to 10pm Monday to Thursday, and 12pm to 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Opening hours on Sundays are noon to 10pm.
