Ice Cream lovers of Rochester, I've got GREAT news for you!

The Boys and Girls Club of Rochester is ironing out details to open The Chocolate Twist, a new ice cream shop on Broadway, next door to Café Steam.  While Rochester isn't lacking in the ice cream-availability department, what will make this place different is the kids from the Club will be learning valuable workplace skills as they facilitate the day to day operations, and revenue generated from the ice cream shop will help fund programs at Club. The ice-cream is coming from the Chocolate Shoppe, known for their “super-premium” ice-cream.

Anyone who has spent free time in the downtown area knows that space for local teens to hang out and chill is at a high premium.  The hope is that ice cream lovers (just like the coffee and tea lovers next door) will pull up a chair and enjoy this new space.

The final details are falling into place and they hope to be up and running within a few months.

You can get an early tasting at Central Park this Saturday, July 15, during Movies on the Park.
