These specialty dairy shops range from artisanal cheese retailers to Nordic yogurt cafes that feature traditional recipes. Though vegan diets are growing in popularity, dairy still rules among those looking to indulge. Retailers are recognizing consumers' focus on health and nutrition and are reaching their target demographic through clean branding and experiential retail concepts.

Rejecting tradition, these specialty dairy shops include mobile and futuristic froyo boutiques that let customers build a custom treat of their liking. On the ice cream front, industrial and vintage-inspired creameries are all about indulging in a space that is fueled by nostalgia.

When it comes to cheese, refined and luxe retail concepts are illustrating the gourmet aspect of the dairy snack while museum-like pop-up shops are connecting food with art.
