Penangites, ever since the global pandemic of COVID-19 hit us and MCO was in place, businesses everywhere struggled to stay afloat. Without a doubt, MCO forced all F&B businesses to take a 2-month hiatus. As the hiatus took its toll on business revenues, some are forced to close down for good. Today, we’re talking about Swensen’s Penang.

Swensen’s Penang Is Ceasing Operations On 1st Of June

As always, we’ll start off with some background info of Swensen’s. Established back in 1948 over at San Fransisco, Swensen’s serves over 180 flavours of ice cream. Then, this San Fransisco ice cream joint came over to Malaysia and opened an outlet right here in Penang. The Penang outlet is located in Auto City, Juru and ever since its opening, Penangites have been swarming over to get their dose of ice cream.

Did you guys know that Swensen’s Penang has been around for 15 years? When we were little, to some of us, Swensen’s Sundae is one of the best birthday treats from our parents that manage to leave all of us in a sugar rush. But of course, it’s a good kinda sugar rush because everyone loves ice cream, right?

Aside from ice cream, Swensen’s is also a casual dining restaurant for both young and elderly. Their menu expanded from dessert to a wide variety of main courses such as burgers, pasta and more.
