Bubbas Ice Cream Back in Business at New Danville Location
DANVILLE, Va. (AP) Bubbas Ice Cream, a long-time beloved establishment that closed its North Main Street location for good last fall, is selling sweet frozen treats again at a new spot.
Owner John Arnone opened the business back up in May in a renovated former car wash building on Franklin Turnpike, next to Rubens Too restaurant.
Arnone likes the new location due to more traffic along Va. 41 than at the old North Main site.
Its been going real well, he said during an interview at the business. I thought it was going to be a good location and it has been.
Bubbas Ice Cream has been a local institution for Dan River Region residents since it first opened in Danville in 1959.
Thirty-nine-year-old customer Christina Holley has enjoyed Bubbas Ice Cream since she was a small child.
I like the banana split in a cup, said the Blairs area resident, who brought her two daughters and their two friends along. Thats my favorite.
