Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! You’ve been patiently waiting! Your nose prints have been on the windows and doors! I am proud to announce the opening of Lavaca’s newest business! ICE SREAM!
A full ice cream parlor will be open for business this week at the corner of Highway 255 and 96 in the plaza that already holds the Lavaca Grill (Elaine’s) and Rub-Em-Tender Barbeque!
After some tremendous setbacks in preparing the place for business, some things that would make other entrepreneurs run for the city limits, Mark and Barbara Hare have completely remodeled this space with checkered tile, white and red booths and tables, new restrooms and prep space. They will be selling soft serve ice cream, cones, malts, milkshakes, specialty sundaes, banana splits and pies and cakes!
I Scream is not the only business venture for the Hare’s. They also own Happy Apple Snow Cone in Lavaca, Grand Slam Fun Center and Wanna Be Racing on Zero Street in Fort Smith. Please drop by and check them out! Welcome them to our community!
