A new ice cream shop has taken over a space that closed its doors in late 2022 after a fire was set to the building, ending its 74-year run.
Sweetie’s Ice Cream shop held a soft opening on Saturday, November 4 for its new business at 212 S Orange Blossom Trail.
Owned and operated by Eric Macintosh Jr. and Jelani Gray, the new business will feature classic soft-serve ice cream and toppings.
On Halloween, Gray and Macintosh held a soft opening for children as a test launch for the business.
The new business takes over a space once occupied by Goff’s Drive-In Ice Cream, which shut down in December 2022 after it was set ablaze in May. That business originally opened its doors in 1948.
