The city’s newest ice cream stand is now open.
Carl D’s Soft Serve opened this week with a limited menu as a training event for owner Carl Debolt and his employees. The business offers soft serve, slushies, sundaes and flavored gourmet popcorn.
The building, located at 1232 Park Street, was home to an upholstery shop for 37 years before Debolt bought it.
“We’re here to complement the area, not compete with Belts’,” said Debolt, recognizing his stand opens just one block south of Belt’s Soft Serve. “There are five bars in this area right now where you can buy the same cold Budweiser and none of those bars have a line out to the door, out to the curb that I’m aware of. They complement one another and hopefully the soft serves will complement one another too.”
Carl D’s is open 11 AM- 11 PM daily.
