Alecia Shipman and Thomas Jamison from Dream Cream Ice Cream Shop stop by to talk about how the shop will share profits with volunteers!
At Dream Cream Ice Cream, we are proud to have received the following recognition as a premier ice cream social enterprise in the Pittsburgh community.
"Joanna Doven, a spokeswoman for the mayor, called the ice cream shop 'a great addition' to the Pop-Up program, which is designed to fill vacant storefronts."
Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and the pop-ups' proprietors gathered Tuesday outside Heinz Hall to celebrate the program and promote a "pop-up crawl" to be held from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday.
Downtown Pittsburgh’s latest pop-up storefront, Dream Cream Ice Cream, hopes to make dreams come true with every cone it sells.
The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership is very enthusiastic to have them as a program participant because we think their for-profit and [nonprofit] concept is a fantastic one," said Bethany Tucke, of Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership and director of Project Pop-Up. "We believe Downtown residents, workers and visitors will welcome an ice cream parlor."
