Motor Sisters Ice Cream Sets Up Shop at the Truck Yard

A soft-serve concept from the owner of Fort Worth's Melt Ice Creams.

Summer may be long gone, but face it: You'll eat ice cream when it's 35 degrees out, so long as it's delicious. Brace, then, for the arrival of Motor Sisters Ice Cream, the new tenant taking over the Truck Yard's ice cream stand.

Brought to you by Kari Crowe Seher and her husband Mark — proprietors of Fort Worth's hipster ice cream shop Melt — Motor Sisters will differ from its Truck Yard predecessor Carnival Barker's in one major way: It specializes in soft-serve, rather than hard-scooped, ice cream.

Crowe says via press release that the concept is inspired by Rosie the Riveter, and
"will honor strong, influential women of history" — like a cone called the Amelia Earhart (a vanilla or chocolate soft-serve cone dipped in Nutella, then rolled in crushed pretzels and peanuts), as well as other "tricked up cones, sundaes and shakes."

Motor Sisters hopes to get up and running by early December, and says it'll have some cold-weather treats in store, too. Best of all, it'll be open to sate an ice cream craving basically any time of day: Hours will be Monday through Thursday noon to 9 p.m. and Friday through Sunday noon to 11 p.m.
