The Yard Milkshake Bar
Recommended by Tampa Locals Travis and Ashley Jennings The Yard Milkshake Bar was created by husband-and-wife team Logan and Chelsea Green. They both came from families of entrepreneurs and spent their early years working for their parents. Logan as an electrician and Chelsea at her parents convenience store. In 2011 Chelsea and her mother started their first ice cream shop, Island Ice Cream, which is still owned by Chelsea today. After years of working with ice cream and desserts, they decided to open a second ice cream shop in 2017. Chelsea knew she wanted it to be like no other dessert place she had ever been to and decided that crazy specialty milkshakes is just what they were looking for. When brainstorming name ideas one night in their living room "The Yard" was born. They opened in May of 2017 and were blown away by the positive reaction of the community and tourists alike in their hometown of Gulf Shores, AL. Making its debut on Shark Tank in 2019 and has since kept growing in popularity and demand!
