Pop’s Malt Shoppe in Kutztown opened for the season on the second day of spring, revealing renovations.

On March 21, owner Joel Seidel, said, “This is our opening day, first day of our season for spring and these are our first customers.”

“I had this day circled on my calendar. I’ve been waiting for this all year,” said Kutztown University junior Jenna Stum, pointing to her ice cream cone.

“I’ve been following it on Facebook and couldn’t wait for the opening day for the great food,” said Kutztown University freshman Kayla Fusselman, of Kempton.

“And the people here are awesome and the food is great. Come on out and have fun,” said Fusselman’s mom Diane.

Talking about the renovation, Seidel said, “Everything in here is new, except a couple of booths. Before we had a couple of tables in here. The counter is new. All of the decor is new. It just gives it a very 50s feel. I absolutely love it.”

This is Pop’s 10th anniversary. In a couple of weeks, a big celebration is in the works, including some 50s music and inexpensive special.
