Who is Ice Cream Works?
We love to tell our sweet story. Back in October 2011, widow Diane was walking her giant Great Dane down the street and met widower Mike. This was about a month after the town of Owego suffered the worst flooding in history. Engaged and married a short time later, we were offered a home and building that had been Mike’s great grandfather’s bottling works-Kies Bottling Works.
We purchased the unflooded home and the messy flooded building that became Ice Cream Works! With a crew of family and friends, we started to rehab the building section by section, starting with the space we needed for Ice Cream Works!. As time and budgets allowed, we finished the rest of the building and we now also house the Farmhouse Brewery and Southern Tier Counseling Solutions.
Ice Cream Works! opened May 8, 2013. We are a family owned and operated business. It’s not that uncommon to have the person waiting on you be one of the family!
