But I thought I’d share this interesting story with you about the success of Cold Stone Creamery’s chain of ice cream shops, which includes one in Roanoke and one in Christiansburg. Cold Stone’s sales suffered during the nation’s economic recession, but the chain is back to growing now, despite competition from other ice cream retailers that mix up ice cream on a cold slab, including Maggie Moos and Marble Slab.
Also, look for some warmer treats to appear on Cold Stone’s menus next month. The chain plans to start serving funnel cakes, brownies and churros to counter winter’s chill.
Additionally, frozen yogurt is coming to Cold Stone’s menus in the spring.
