George Dunlap, I had the pleasure of getting to know Brent Murray around April of 2016; by that time he had already figured out how he was going to serve his customers with the best quality homemade ice creams available, supported by an awesome team of excited employees,
I had the pleasure to catch up with Brent this week and hear what he is up to for 2023. If you are a newbie or an old war-horse like me, I know you will find our conversation about our industry, covid, and his vision going forward exciting.
On April 1, Salt & Straw will launch its first soft-serve concept, Wiz Bang Bar.

Worlds Biggest soft serve cone, Nick made this, at #RIZUTOSIceCream in Colorado Springs. It nothin special for us, since we do cones this big all the time, as you can see in the poster behind… but I see smaller ones claiming the biggest, so I thought I would add ours.

Are you going to stand around and let the folks a Rizuto’s run away with this title?
