Franklin Fountain is Taking Their Talents to South Philly for Exclusive Treats at P’unk Burger
East Passyunk’s organic burger and shake hot spot announces a new partnership with Old City District’s most famous ice cream parlour. Starting on Thursday, December 8th, P’unk Burger will carry three new holiday milkshakes made with ice cream sourced from The Franklin Fountain. Customers can celebrate the flavors of the holiday with Gingersnap Eggnog Custard, Cinnamon and non-dairy Peppermint Stick. The three shakes are only the start, as P’unk Burger will regularly source from The Franklin Fountain going forward, and even debut a custom, exclusive East Passyunk-inspired new ice cream and milkshake by late spring. All milkshakes with The Franklin Fountain ice cream are $8.00 each. The three seasonal flavors are also available at P’unk Burger by the scoop as well as for floats with Maine Root natural soda on the fountain.
“We always wanted to be in South Philadelphia, and we want to thank P’unk Burger for making this happen,” added The Franklin Fountain’s Eric Berley.
The Dilks’ affinity for The Franklin Fountain is not new – and in fact dates back to 2008 where the young couple shot their engagement photos in Old City outside The Franklin Fountain’s market street ice cream parlour. The two were reminded of The Franklin Fountain and the seasonal flavors during a recent family stroll with their children at Christmas Village. Marlo spotted the seasonal flavors at The Franklin Fountain and Shane Confectionery wooden huts outside City Hall. The Dilks reached out to The Franklin Fountain and found a vast selection of non-dairy options – and soon after met with the Berley brothers.
P’unk Burger will release video experts from the initial meeting of the foodie minds between the Dilks’ and Berley’s later this month on their Facebook page and Instagram feed.
