They’ve seen a spike in nighttime business with the opening of Opus restaurant across the street, he said.
In addition to the lineup of ice creams, the shop sells sorbet, cupcakes, brownies and cookies.
The screamery has 12 employees; Hopkins said they anticipate employing about 20 at peak season. They’ll probably close for a short break over the Christmas holidays but will otherwise be open year-round, depending on demand, Hopkins said.
This summer, they’ve supplied ice cream for the city’s Scooper Bowl, the Witches Cup bicycle race and ice cream socials for YMCA programs.
