Zesty’s Welcomes Summer with its New Store!

Jun 23, 2015

Just in time for summer!  Enjoying a frozen treat just got easier as Zesty’s celebrated the first day of summer by opening its new frozen custard and grill location in Howard, on Green Bay metro’s north side.

After a year of planning, owner’s Ted Zieman and Janelle French opened on the same calendar date that the first Zesty’s store did, 27 years ago in Green Bay. “This is an exciting day, we’re actually celebrating being in business for 27 years and last week we were voted the winner of “Best of the Bay” frozen treat – for three years in a row! Our frozen custard is voted the best, and we are proud to be recognized for it.”

Ted thanked Smet Construction Services for their involvement in the project and Paul Belschner, Smet’s President, thanked everyone for coming out and discussed the sustainability aspect of the project.  Prior to this the facility was a Fox Communities Credit Union. “This is just the type of project that Smet is known for, the adaptive re-use of a building and re-purposing to another use. One of the things we pride ourselves in doing at Smet is to re-work these buildings.” Paul said.

Part of the re-working for this facility included new colors and creating a signature epoxy floor that stands up to the tough stains and spills known in custards stores. The floor really ties together the creative color scheme picked out by Smet’s interior designer, Sarah Reese who said, “It’s really bright and fun!”

Howard’s public works Director, Geoff Farr, welcomed Ted and Janelle on behalf of the village of Howard and noted the location across from Bay Port High School and nearby walking trails should be great for business.

So now that summer is here, check out the new colors, and floor at Zesty’s! And don’t forget to cool off with a nice home-made, local frozen treat!
