Now that’s a plan to support schools! Let’s get all the schools to have a board member buy a store and support their school with a percentage of the proceeds!

Hatzlacha Rabbah!

Just want to mention one point. This store is right across from the Rebbes shul- 770! Please please make an effort to play nice and aidel jewish music 😊 The music is heard by everybody that passes by outside!

Beautiful

Mazzel tov!

That’s the way to go

Separate cashier and barista job when busy

To eliminate the line, separate cashier job and barista /ice cream maker like in all ice creams stores. So line will be moving faster, one person can deal with money and two with orders when busy
Pls ask all use disposable gloves – they clean store, take money and all without any or same glove 🧤
Thanks hazlohos

I remember In 1989 in gan yisroel new york yerachmiel was part of the canteen, that was his job.

Much luck !!

Unfortunately I agree with the suggestion to wear gloves & also to change gloves after touching dirty things. I saw a worker at another store on Kingston wring out a very dirty mop & then prepare food for someone without changing gloves! We want our food to be kosher AND clean 😁

thank you

Thanks to original owner avrumi shwarz – he brought an outside, new, upscale look to Kingston ave.

now many others have begun doing so in the neighborhood, but this was a prime corner and gave some pop to the hood.

I wish him well wherever he is.

And I wish the new owners much success, regardless of what they do with their profits. improve the place? sure. keep it colorful, fun, lively. and add better hygiene and faster service and lower prices. maybe have healthier ice cream and gelatos, show all the ingredients…

Please keep this s kosher spot for our young kids. Mr Schwartz was careful to never bring girls and boys to work same shift . And always kosher music . I’m sure we can expect this from a fellow chasid! Thank you for all that you do for the community

giving to Beis Rivka is a great idea, especially when the largest percent of customers are BR students! Hatzlacha Raba in all your endeavors.

I recently went in to buy a hostess gift and I was very impressed by the beautiful selection of gift items (they were more expensive than I expected, though.) But to give back 10% to Beis Rivka?? I wouldn’t mind paying those prices next time, it’s a wonderful thing for the Jacobsons to do!

Lots of Hatzlocha and success…

Credit is given where credit is due! Mr. Schwartz worked hard for so many years to build this fantastic store. Always clean and well taken care of, I wish all stores in the neighborhood copy suit.
As well Mr Schwartz was always with a smile on his face and took care of us. My brother a shluach tells me that he used to give out free coupons for them and for their kids. Kodus Mr. Schwartz and wishing you lots of luck!
