The antique machines chugging along in the lobby of Ted & Wally’s downtown location aren’t for show. “Those are 20-quart White Mountain freezers,” reveals co-owner Joe Pittack, adding that the freezers are over 100 years old and still in use today. It’s one of many aspects that makes Ted & Wally’s so charming. The other aspect, of course, is the delicious ice cream.
“Our ice cream is old-fashioned, East Coast style,” says co-owner Jeanne Ohira. “It’s thick and heavy and locally sourced.” Ted & Wally’s ice cream is categorized as super premium, which means making it is an experience quite unlike the ice cream found in grocery stores. “We make it how we like it,” said Ohira, and they like it made from scratch without corn syrup or artificial ingredients.
The second Ted & Wally’s location in Benson continues to thrive. Customers can enjoy locally-sourced cuisine at Big Green Q and follow it up with locally sourced ice cream from Ted & Wally’s.
