"Moppin' up soda pop rickies,
So sang Glenn Miller's Orchestra in the early 1940s, about an American institution - the neighborhood soda fountain.
To our heart delight,
Dancing to a swingeroo quickie,
JukeBox Saturday Night..."
From the turn of the century and through to the 1960s, the local soda fountain was the cornerstone of every town’s Main Street. Often housed in the drug store, the neighborhood soda fountain counter served as a social gathering place for people of all ages. Movie stars were discovered while sitting around them. Kids - and adults - spun round and round on the brightly colored stools. Teenagers spent countless hours sipping a malted milkshakes and feeding the jukebox while the older folks sipped coffee and shared stories.
Now almost a half century later, the soda fountain has been reinvented as The Pop Shop.
Specializing in American comfort cuisine that’s creatively distinct, our goal is to make The Pop Shop such a meeting place by combining a welcoming community-centered atmosphere, moderate prices, and warm service. Our aim is to be known as a "friendly place." The place everyone goes to after games or plays. A place for first dates and play dates. An after school hangout and senior social destination. A place you can take a date or your three-year-old on a Saturday night.
A place for all generations.
