The local franchise menu features edible cookie dough, scooped ice cream, milkshakes, floats, sundaes and more.
The Yard Milkshake Bar, a “Shark Tank” TV show winner that franchises, scheduled a grand opening May 20-22 at 4906 Town Center Parkway in The Strand at Town Center.
Its “Jacksonville Exclusive” is The Sunshine Shake of Orange Blossom ice cream with yellow and orange marshmallow drizzle in a yellow marshmallow dipped souvenir jar rolled in orange sugar sprinkles.
The $17 pint is topped with whipped cream, a locally sourced sunshine cookie, a cotton candy cloud and more sugar sprinkles.
The Jacksonville menu features more specialty shakes such as The Mermaid, Birthday Cake, Salted Caramel Cheesecake and the lactose-free and vegan-friendly Not Milk? with Chocolate Chunk Oatmilk Vegan ice cream.
The menu features milkshakes, floats, sundaes, edible cookie dough and scooped ice cream along with specialty bowls, like the $12 Sunshine Bowl.
There also are gluten-free and additional vegan options.
There are 30 flavors of ice cream, eight varieties of edible cookie dough and almost 60 toppings of 75 cents or $2 each.

Charles and Beth Davall and partners Patti and James Burchell operate the location.
Davall said previously it will be a locally owned and operated franchise of the Gulf Shores, Alabama-based The Yard Milkshake Bar.
Davall said it is the first of two area locations with the second to be determined.
Store hours are noon until 8 p.m.
The Yard Milkshake Bar has 22 locations in 11 states, including the four Florida shops in Destin, Panama City, Tampa and Jacksonville.
The Jacksonville shop is the former Yogurt Mountain space next to the Grub restaurant.
Theyardmilkshakebar.com says Chelsea Green started her first ice cream shop with her mother in 2011 in Gulf Shores and added a second in May 2017.
She, her husband, Logan, and her sister-in-law, Ali, sought $400,000 for 10% of their company on the ABC reality TV show “Shark Tank,” where entrepreneurs pitch their ventures to investors.
The debut on “Shark Tank” in November 2019 landed shark Mark Cuban for a $400,000 investment and 22% ownership. Cuban’s holdings include owning the NBA Dallas Mavericks.
