A popular frozen dessert chain is coming to Bayside just in time for the summer.

Snowdays NYC will open its newest storefront at 42-28 Bell Blvd., the former site of an AT&T wireless store, in mid- to late June, according to AssetCRG broker Michelle Abramov. Bayside is listed as a “coming soon” location on the company’s website.

The chain has filed work permits with the Department of Buildings to renovate the existing interior space. On May 23, construction workers could be seen working at the site.


Snowdays already operates storefronts in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Forest Hills, where they serve shaved cream — a New York City take on Taiwanese and Korean shaved ices. The frozen treat “pairs the fluffy texture of snow with the taste and creaminess of ice cream,” according to their site.

The shaved cream is made on premises with organic dairy from the Hudson Valley and comes in a variety of flavors, including New York Cheesecake, Green Tea Matcha and Yetitracks, which is flavored with blueberries and Oreo cookies.

Diners can top off their treats with chocolate chips, Pocky sticks, Lucky Charms and other fun toppings.

AssetCRG, a Queens-based brokerage firm, brokered the transaction to lease the 1,200-square-foot space on behalf of the landlord. Abramov and Joseph Mast are the brokers of record.
