About George Dunlap

1973 my parents opened their ice cream store called Peppermint Patti's in Defiance, OH. We served soft ice cream/custard and hand scooped ice cream. During my years at Bowling Green State University (1973-1977) I worked in the store and traveled NW Ohio selling frozen ice cream novelties to grocery stores. After I graduated from BGSU in 1977, I traveled the Midwest USA selling Ice Cream machines, designing and bulding ice cream stores.

Ample Hills ice cream: price, flavors, review – Business Insider

Business Insider – Kaitlin Hatton

Ample Hills Creamery has become a favorite among New York City-based ice cream aficionados thanks in part to its rich tastes and zany flavors.The local chain was born in Brooklyn in the spring of 2011 to budding entrepreneurs Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscana. The couple began creating ice cream and baked goods from scratch, spending hours a day churning out their original flavors. Ample Hills has grown rapidly, expanding to nine locations in New York City, one in Disney World and now, a new store coming to New Jersey. Smith said he has big plans for the future, including growing the business to be on the level of Starbucks or Ben & Jerry’s. He told Bloomberg that he plans to complete a Series A funding round this fall, and is hoping to raise $8 million. Plans for a massive ice cream factory are also in the works.”We want our brick-and-mortar shops to be community hubs in the way that [Starbucks executive chairman] Howard Schultz transformed the idea of coffee shops into a destination. Where people go to pass the time … we want to do that with ice cream,” he said. I was curious to see if Ample Hills Creamery would live up to the hype, so I visited two locations within New York City.

(Courtesy Humphry Slocombe)By Angela Hill | ahill@bayareanewsgroup.com | Bay Area News GroupPUBLISHED: September 11, 2017 at 1:00 pm | UPDATED: September 11, 2017 at 4:46 pmAt least the recent hot weather in the Bay Area served up a sweet silver lining: a screaming desire for ice cream.And that desire has been fulfilled, especially for the cult followers of Humphry Slocombe’s.For more food and drink coveragefollow us on Flipboard.The SF-based ice cream company, founded by Jake Godby and Sean Vahey in 2008 and known for its wild and wacky flavors (like Hibiscus Beet Sorbet, Elvis: The Fat Years and Here’s Your Damn Strawberry), opened its first East Bay site in Oakland a couple of weeks ago. Mmmm, “First East Bay Site.” That could be one of their flavors!The new Humphry Slocombe can be found at The Hive in Oakland’s Uptown district, a shopping/gathering space that’s already home to hip spots like Drake’s Dealership brewery and Firebrand Artisan Breads.And you can’t miss Humphry Slocombe. For one, there’s probably a huge, long line. Plus, the ice cream stand is in an electric-blue shipping container, just across from Peoples Barber & Shop.They do indeed plan Oakland-centric flavors, like Oatlandish — a combo of Drake’s stout and oatmeal cookie.Like the Oakland Tribune Facebook page for more conversation and news coverage from Oakland and beyond.Humphry Slocombe is at 2335 Broadway (between 24th and 25th streets), Oakland; open 1 to 11 p.m. Monday-Thursday, noon to midnight Friday-Saturday and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday; www.humphryslocombe.com.
