Our Customers are the Greatest,
thank you for coming to our store!
Ice-Cream Maker Extraordinaire/Co-Owner About Judy: “My family used to make ice cream for special occasions. I’ve got childhood memories of picnics and family functions. We always made homemade ice cream, so I chose to develop this love. It’s such a fun business. When we opened the store, I was involved in all aspects of the store, but basically I focused in on production.
It is so much fun for me—the customer interaction, the process—everything! I love the fact that there are four owners.”Years at Bonnie Brae Ice Cream: 21 years
Favorite Flavor: “I’ve always gone nuts over the Banana Walnut, and it reminds me of the ice cream my family used to make. I think the Tiramisu is to die for. And actually I’m nuts for Ginger Spice, too.”
Ice-Cream Mastermind and Genius
About Richard: “I answered a want ad in one of the local papers for a baker’s assistant. I came in and met with the baker at the time, and things just seemed to fall into place. When the nature of the business focused on ice cream, they offered me the opportunity to make ice cream full-time, and I’ve been doing it ever since. As the years went by, I realized that this was my calling. The owners have said to me many times before that I’m a perfectionist and will go to the nth degree to create the finest ice cream possible, so I’m glad to be doing good work. It’s truly a joy to have customers rave about the product.” Years at Bonnie Brae Ice Cream: 20
Favorite Flavor: “I always go back to Grand Marnier Chocolate chip. Second is Almond Joy.”
The Best Manager in the World
About Kerry: “I’m a native so I was familiar with Bonnie Brae. I’d worked at a local dairy store and just needed a change and saw an opening for a part-time person. I came in to work behind the counter, and I literally stepped into a great opportunity. It was a perfect fit. I love people, and the whole atmosphere was so great. Evelyn Houlihan, who had been the manager for 13 years, announced her retirement a few months after she hired me, so I stepped into the manager role shortly afterwards.”
Years at Bonnie Brae Ice Cream: 10
Favorite Flavor: “Peppermint. Because you can’t find superb peppermint ice cream anywhere. I put a little chocolate syrup on it.”
