Haag Brown Commercial announced Monday (July 1) that Baskin Robbins will return to Jonesboro, joining Stanton Optical in the newly redeveloped Premier Auto center on Red Wolf Boulevard, across from Starbucks.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed and an opening date was not released.

Baskin Robbins is the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty stores with over 8,000 locations internationally.

Haag Brown Commercial’s executive broker Zac Qualls represented both the development’s owner and the Baskin Robbins franchisee, a local restaurant owner/operator, in securing the long-term lease.

The former car dealership is being renovated to create a modern multi-tenant center. Construction on their 1,223-square-foot space will begin soon, with the opening expected shortly.

“It was a lot of fun working with the local franchisee in bringing back such a nostalgic brand to Jonesboro. The Premier Auto building redevelopment was the perfect location with excellent visibility, access from Red Wolf Boulevard and a drive-thru end-cap will all make getting your favorite scoop of ice cream even easier. I know my girls can’t wait for them to open,” said Qualls.
