BANGOR – The former Blackbeards USA property on the Odlin Road will open Friday as a drive-thru ice cream shop.
Mike and Sue Jillson, the owners of Sabattus-based Fielder’s Choice Homemade Ice Cream, purchased the 6-acre property in April and have spent months renovated it into their newest ice cream shop.
They’ll be serving up sundaes with names like “The Dugout Floor” and “The Muddy Cleat” and soft served ice cream blended with candy, cake or fruit called “The Wind Up.”
“We did a survey on Facebook and by far and away Bangor was the most requested place for us to set up a new shop,” Mike Jillson said Thursday, with his wife standing nearby.
The site’s mini-golf course remains, and extra outdoor seating was added.
The family-owned company also has locations in Auburn, Brunswick, Manchester and Old Orchard Beach.
