JP Licks, a chain of ice cream shops headquartered in Jamaica Plain, will open three new locations in 2013, including one in Lynnfield.
This week, Rockland Trust announced $4.5 million in refinancing to help the company expand. According to the announcement, JP Licks was established in 1981 and currently has 11 locations.

The ice cream chain's other locations will be at Assembly Road in Somerville and 1106 Boylston Street in Back Bay.
