Standish invites customers to indulge in a world of
creamy frozen delights that are unique and innovative.
Since opening its doors in May, The Outpost Scoop Shoppe located at 380 Pequawket Trail has garnered a loyal following, thanks to its commitment to quality and service.  The building formerly known as the Inlet was acquired in January 2023 by the Decrow family and is now home to The Outpost Scoop Shoppe and an independently owned family restaurant.

While the Scoop Shoppe is a family-owned business, Abigail Decrow’s passion and inspiration are what make this business thrive. Abigail’s enthusiasm for community engagement is evident in every aspect of their ice cream business.

“The Outpost Scoop Shoppe prides itself in offering quality ice cream and supreme service. Our weekly specials are unique and keep our menu fresh.” Decrow said. “We introduced a few new products to the local market, including ice cream nachos, flights, and specialty stackers also known as parfaits. Some of our unique specials have recently been picked up by other local ice cream shops.”

Abigail’s journey began in a little ice cream shop in Falmouth who also served Shain’s of Maine and Hershey. She was mentored by veteran ice cream shop owners and that experience is the foundation of her operation model today. Her time in a local Windham ice cream shop allowed her to explore her creativity.

At The Outpost Scoop Shoppe customers will find a kaleidoscope of many different flavors of ice cream produced both locally and nationally, best sellers, and in both hard and soft-serve options. The menu which features many original combinations is a testament to Decrow’s dedication to innovation and creativity.

Specialty drinks offered by The Outpost Scoop Shoppe include energy surges, frozen lemonade, nor’easters, milkshakes, frappes, floats, spritzers, freezes, and ice cream sodas.

Customers can try out tempting tasty sundae flavors such as Granny D's Whoopie Pie, Watchic Wonder, or Ultimate Brownie Sundae. Customers don’t need to be limited by the menu options, they can also branch out and create their own sundaes. They even offer pup cups topped with a doggy biscuit for a tasty refreshment for your furry friends.

“If you have dietary restrictions, we have you covered. We offer vegan, dairy-free, low fat low sugar yogurts, and no-sugar added ice cream options,” Decrow said. “We have over six different dairy-free options and an array of frozen energy drinks and specialty drinks. Our prices are competitive, our service is exceptional, and our specials are worth driving past your regular ice cream spot to give us a try.”

The Outpost’s specialty stacker flavors include Oreo Bliss, Bass Master or Campfire or you can build your own unique creations. The Outpost Scoop Shoppe prides itself in serving weekly exclusive specials which are advertised on their social media channels - try them before they sell out. And if you have not tried their ice cream nachos yet, you are missing out on an exceptional delicious treat you won’t find anywhere else.

In the future, Decrow plans to expand the business to include ice cream cakes, pies and other baked goods. She would also like to take her business on the road in an ice cream truck for birthday parties and special event catering.

The list of regulars is growing by the day and their passion for creating memorable moments is evident in every scoop they serve.

Online reviews are extraordinary.
