Sweet Lics began as a dream of Barb's about 4 years ago. She realized that it was time for her to utilize her skills as a talented event planner, banquet manager, designer, financial manager and genuine budding entrepreneur to create a business of her own. She began her journey that led her throughout this great Country and Europe to find the most creative shop designs, the best quality product and the finest mentors, which included Mindful Designs out of San Diego and AGP General Contractor from Volusia County, to embrace and interpret her idea and bring it to life. She chose DeLand, Florida as her flagship location. Barb not only lives in DeLand but she has built a life in this quaint college town and has become well known and truly liked and admired as a pillar of the community. She wanted to locate in the heart of the historical district of downtown and the opportunity presented itself when a property became available in March of 2015.
The News Journal presented Sweet Lics with 2017 Best of the West, as well as 2017 Best of the Best for any yogurt store in the Volusia/Flagler county area in Florida. An accomplishment Barb and her staff are extremely proud of, and aptly display on the wall of their shop for all to see.
This beautiful shop was under construction for nine months, her cheerful ice cream/yogurt shop finally became a dream come true – much to the delight of her patiently waiting patrons. Sweet Lics Treats & More has been in business a mere three years, but has already garnered several local community awards for everything from smoothies to hot dogs.
With the help of interior design firm Mindful Design Consulting, Sweet Lics took a cheerful, contemporary design and blended it seamlessly with industrial inspiration. Old meets new in the modern but utilitarian seating and tables. The glow of floor-to-ceiling neon fixtures livens up the old brick wall that runs the length of the store. A palette of pink, yellow and blue brings an energetic vibe while plenty of windows fill the space with light. The galley-style serving area calls to mind historic rowhouses and the assembly-line structure of old factories, but playful pendant lighting and gorgeous glass tiling keep the atmosphere entertaining and friendly.
Sweet Lics (224 N Woodland Blvd., DeLand, FL 32720) is just three blocks away from Stetson University and a five-minute walk from Painter’s Pond. Visitors can enjoy their cool treats on the patio or step inside to meet the bubbly owner that inspired the shop’s cheerful design.
