(Courtesy Humphry Slocombe)By Angela Hill | email@example.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.

A conversation with Jake Klein, Lead Project Manager, Taylor Freezer of Michigan. I caught up with Jake at the 2017 GLICFFA Convention in Lansing, MI on February 4th I was working the Taylor Freezer of MI booth helping with their customers and sales reps. He talks about his roll at the ice cream & food specialty sales company in Michigan. Jake handles the social media, web design, and related internet and marketing areas at the distributorship. He talks about how he is updating the sales reps awareness a of social media tools and how they can continue to grow their sales as well as serve existing customers. Jake tells me how he brings together the internet marketing support programs from Taylor Company and ties it in with his companies sales and service needs. He is working hard to blend the best of the past with the tools of the future. Enjoy and I trust you will find it of value.
I first meet with Kurt Dehner, owner of Sisters Sweet Shoppe , Dublin, Ohio, USA, on April 15, 2015. I was introduced by my good friend Matt Wilicoxin with Johnson’s Real Ice Cream, Columbus, OH. I had the pleasure to work with Kurt on the design & layout of his new shoppe. See below how Kurt and the team went from a rough design to a finished beautiful store layout.
Step 1, New Store Design – Rough Draft Store Design Concept
Step 2, Once Kurt agreed on the rough concept we moved to the next rough design.
Step 3, Option #2 (below) was chosen and it was sent to the building engineer for detailed drawings for local community code approvals. Electrical, water, sewer, lighting, and construction needs were detailed at this point. At this point I become the building consultant for my customer.
Pictures of store layout & equipment
Take a few minutes and listen to Kurt tell his story of buying an existing business, designing a new shop, moving into the new shop, and how he competes with some pretty big competitors in his neighborhood.
