The Port Washington News shines a spotlight on local businesses:
Katie Shepardson, 23, employee at Douglas & James Homemade Ice Cream
When did this store open?
“This is our 21st year in Port Washington,” Shepardson said.
What are some of your biggest sellers?
“Ice cream-wise,” Shepardson asked, “I guess it would be the Double Dutch brownie or cookies & cream.” She said that it’s probably because her father makes it fresh with homemade Ghirardelli brownies.
What is the most bizarre order a customer has requested?
“When people try to blend seltzer and ice cream,” Shepardson said, trying not to cringe. “There have been a few times where I’ve tried it that it hasn’t been bad though.”
