Dallas Ice Cream Shop Moving To Save Business In The Midst Of The Pandemic

Howdy Homemade Ice Cream is an ice cream shop that has employed adults with special needs since 2015.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the company has been operating at a loss since March.

In attempts to keep the business up and running, the company is shutting down its original store on Lovers Lane and moving to a smaller shop on Inwoood Road.

The smaller shop will save the business thousands of dollars each month in rent, however, it may not be enough to save the ice cream shop. In a social media post, Howdy Homemade stated, "NOTHING will stop us from our mission at Howdy, but COVID has surely been tough on our small business..."

The post then states that a customer has set up a Go Fund Me in efforts to relieve some of the stress. "One of our Howdy customers has started a Go Fund Me to help us cover operating costs this fall and winter when ice cream sales slow... and we have a dream of buying an ice ream truck so we can drive all over Dallas Fort Worth spreading hope, happiness and amazing ice cream," the post read.

The last day to grab a scoop at the original store is Tuesday, September 9th.
