Goo Goo Cluster Announces Grand Opening of the Goo Goo Outpost at Fontanel
Goo Goo Cluster, LLC is pleased to announce its first retail store, located on the grounds of Fontanel in North Nashville. The Goo Goo Outpost will carry all three variations of the Goo Goo Cluster, the Goo Goo Cluster branded merchandise line, an array of nostalgic candies, and a selection of Bravo Gelato’s locally made gelatos, including their new Goo Goo Cluster Original and Chocolate Peanut Butter Goo Goo flavors.
"We're excited to be partnering with the historic Fontanel property for our first retail operation, the Goo Goo Outpost. The management team at Fontanel has done an amazing job over the past few years turning what was originally Barbara Mandrell's mansion into a multi-‐use events and recreation destination” said Lance Paine, Executive Vice President of Goo Goo Cluster, LLC. “With The Woods Amphitheater, The Studio Gallery performance venue, zip lines, disc golf course, The Trails, and the soon-‐to-‐be-‐ opened Prichard's Distillery and Southern Living Idea House, there really is no other place like Fontanel in Nashville. We feel that all the different family activities available on property create the right atmosphere for the Goo Goo Cluster brand, which has been a family favorite here in the South for generations."
While the new store softly opened to the public last week, the official grand opening day is Saturday, May 18. During the day of festivities, shoppers will be treated to a sampling of confections, be entered to win fabulous prizes, and have the opportunity for photos with the Goo Goo mascots and Goo Goo girls.
The Goo Goo Outpost, located at 4225 Whites Creek Pike, will be open daily from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., closed on Tuesdays. In addition to the Outpost at Fontanel, Goo Goo Cluster also operates an online store at www.googoo.com.
About Goo Goo Cluster Goo Goo Cluster
The Original Southern Confection was invented in 1912 by Howell Campbell, who developed the world’s first combination candy bar in a copper kettle at the Standard Candy Company at Clark & First Avenue in Nashville. The unique confection is a roundish mound of caramel, marshmallow nougat, fresh roasted peanuts and real milk chocolate. Today, the Original Goo Goo Cluster is also available in two additional varieties: Supreme, with pecans instead of peanuts, and Peanut Butter. Goo Goo Clusters are available in retail stores across the United States, as well as online. Visit www.googoo.com for more information.
