There was a line for the pizza at Derosier’s in Freeport, Maine, but that wasn’t our line.
Our line was for the ice cream. They serve sundaes in Chinese take-out containers, and my combo of cookie dough, cookies and cream and deep-dish apple pie (yup, that’s a flavor) with whipped cream, nuts and peanut better was awesome.
The young woman behind the counter could have probably used some help, but she was giving it her all.
But whether Derosier’s is a pizza place that sells ice cream or an ice cream place that sells people, it raises what to me is an obvious question.
Why aren’t there more of them?
But more importantly, at all times, in all places, someone wants either pizza or ice cream. Or both. Why not double your chances that they’ll buy one or both from you?
I would have to guess that selling pizza and ice cream requires two different sets of equipment that have to be kept apart, plus storage, but it looks like Derosier’s was able to pull it off, and it wasn’t all that big.
So if they can do it, why can’t more places do it?
