Goodie’s Frozen Custard & Treats opens in Old Town

Goodie’s Frozen Custard & Treats officially opened its doors in the the 1930s-era ice house at 200 Commerce Street over Memorial Day weekend.

The frozen custard shop is now open Thursday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m., or whenever they sell out. In the meantime, owner Brandon Byrd’s ice cream truck “Gigi” will be used for special events.

“It’s a sweet feeling to be open our doors after more than a year,” Byrd told ALXnow. “People can finally get their frozen custard fix at the ice house.”

There is only one flavor, vanilla, and customers can choose from a myriad of toppings. Snacks include rum cake, cinnamon rolls and doughnuts.

Byrd says that he will likely take the month of February off every year, and that he expects strong business now that COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.

“We’re ready to rock and roll,” Byrd said. “I’m opening this as a community space, so look forward to pop-ups and a lot of special events.”
