Welcome these new businesses to Thousand Oaks!
Peloton is reinventing fitness with live and on-demand boutique studio classes you can take anytime with the Peloton Bike, Peloton Tread & Peloton App. Peloton recently opened a kiosk at The Oaks Mall located at 350 W. Hillcrest Drive.
Coaches Ice Cream
Coaches Ice Cream opened at 3345 Kimber Drive next to the Country Harvest Restaurant in the Wendy-Kimber Plaza. The combination of low overrun (the amount of air in the ice cream), the high butterfat content (for richness), and the quality ingredients makes Coaches Ice Cream "the best Super Premium ice cream around."
Pizza Cookery
After 44 years, the Original Pizza Cookery is relocating from Woodland Hills to Thousand Oaks! The new restaurant will be located adjacent to the Best Western Plus Thousand Oaks Inn, located at 75 West Thousand Oaks Boulevard. It will feature items from the original restaurant in the Nostalgia Room, which will can be reserved for private parties.
