Ice Cream in Sarasota Florida – November 2022

After a few busy weeks visiting with many great customers around Southern USA and Florida, my wife Nancy and I meet up with our daughter and her family. The best part of that week was sharing ice cream with my grandson Oliver. We hit all the great shops in the Sarasota area. One in particular is Orange Octopus Ice Cream, with 2 locations, our favorite is located behind Captain Curt’s Crab & Oyster Bar on Siesta Key, Florida. Oliver loves all their Homemade Ice Creams.

I have had the pleasure to serve Moncef Bennaji and his wife with both their stores. If you are in the Sarasota area, stop by, they make some of the best tasting Ice Creams. My grandson Oliver says so!


This past summer has been our busiest summer with installs for new and existing retail ice cream shops. If you are in need of our services contact George Dunlap 24 X7 @ 614-378-8466.

Soft Serve or Hard Scooped Ice Cream, which do I sell – the trend is to offer both, 2 unique and different markets that you can satisfy.

There was a time that if you wanted a Scooped Ice Cream cone you went to the local hand dipped ice cream shop, if you wanted soft serve you went to the local Dairy Bar. Today selling both Hard and Soft Ice Cream at the same shop continues to grow. Why? Because it is the answer to serving your customer’s wants. Can a shop survive selling only 1 style Ice Cream, Yes. But the growing trend is to blend both into the shop menu.

Charlotte’s Soft Serve Ice Cream shop, is a example of this move to selling both. Why? Because her customers wanted both. How hard is it to add 8 or more flavors of scooped ice cream? It is easy, contact your local Ice Cream Supplier – Dairy. In Charlotte’s case she added Perry’s Ice Cream. This becomes a profitable partnership between you the shop owner and your ice cream supplier.
