Johnny Cupcakes and J.P. Licks Partnership
Wednesday, June 23, 2021
Back in 2020, we began a collaboration with our Newbury Street neighbors, Johnny Cupcakes. Johnny Earle, founder of Johnny Cupcakes, and Vincent Petryk, founder of J.P. Licks, sat down to talk unique flavors and t-shirt designs.
We were all set to go come early Spring, 2020. Obviously, things were put on hold for a while. It took several tries to get just the right level of smokiness in our new Applewood Smoked Vanilla ice cream last year but we had the recipe and kept it tucked in our big recipe book. Once we knew we could launch everything in 2021, Johnny and Vince worked together to update the t-shirt design to reflect their 20th anniversary and our 40th.
Both the tee and the ice cream flavor are available for a limited time in all J.P. Licks stores and you can order the t-shirt from our website. Vincent and Johnny love seeing these sweet treats as unique as their businesses now available to you!

J.P. Licks and the Boston Marathon
Monday, May 10, 2021
It has been two Marathon Mondays since we have seen a sea of runners go past our stores. We have seriously missed the energy this day brings to our "race adjacent" stores. Both the runners themselves but all of the people who come out to cheer them on. Both strangers and friends alike stand on the sidewalks and cheer and we revel in the energy you brint to our "race adjacent" stores - Wellesley, Coolidge Corner, Newbury Street, Boylston Street, Charles Street - we love being so close to the route that we can hear the cheers, see the silver blankets, and help you refuel for more cheering! The race is supposed to return to the street this Fall - until then, keep training and stop by to say HELLO anytime. Thanks to WBZ for bringing us all together for this Spring's Marathon Monday.

City Counselor Matt O'Malley and J.P. Licks Announce Coffee Composting Program!
Saturday, February 16, 2019
We were inspired by Councilor Matt O’Malley’s initiatives – the plastic bag ban and his push to get curbside composting started in Boston. We are happy to help push that effort toward sustainability along by starting to make the coffee grounds available. With so many environmentally conscious people in Boston & the surrounding towns and us having this amazing resource of coffee grounds, it felt like an easy way to connect with the neighborhoods we call home.
It’s great for your garden:
Adding coffee grounds to your soil helps with drainage, water retention, and aeration and decreases how much you need to depend on chemical fertilizers (more info will be available on our website about how to use it), so why not - let’s make our neighborhoods more beautiful!
