The Yard Milkshake Bar opening in Tampa this year

The Yard Milkshake Bar is the home of some of the most inventive milkshakes you’ve ever tasted, in addition to a delicious edible cookie dough menu. This concept is is the brainchild of Logan and Chelsea Green, who you may recognize from their NBC Shark Tank appearance. Soon it will open in Carrollwood at 13168 N. Dale Mabry Hwy. Unit 30.

The spot officially opens October 9! Here’s the full announcement:


“Come experience the most unique and over-the-top milkshakes taking over the South since 2017. Locally owned and operated, the owners are extremely excited to be bringing this concept to Carrollwood!The Yard Milkshake Bar has a variety of different ice cream flavors and numerous topping selections. We offer signature milkshakes and sundaes, as well as vegan and gluten free options.”

Both Logan and Chelsea 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. 

The Yard Milkshake Bar was a dream come true

In 2011 Chelsea and her mother started their first ice cream shop, Island Ice Cream, that 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 with the positive reaction of the community and tourist alike in their home town of Gulf Shores, AL. They have now expanded to Panama City Beach, FL, Fairhope, AL, Austin, TX. There is also two new Franchise locations in D’Iberville, MS and Hattiesburg, MS.

The Tampa location is set to have its own special Key Lime Pie flavor.

Here’s what the future owner of the milkshake franchise had to say:

“We felt tha Tampa needs a place to bring families together and what better place than The Yard where all the family can enjoy a new and creative way of enjoying milkshakes and ice cream!! We are super excited and can’t wait to open our doors this coming fall!!!”
