Ice cream by bike

. May 29, 2013.

Rob Hess is something of an ice cream aficionado. He spends most of his free time in the kitchen, creating new and intriguing flavors — candied bacon ice cream, peppercorn ice cream, and a vegan chocolate sorbet, to name a few. He’ll turn that hobby into a one-man business operation when he begins his Go! Ice Cream venture, tentatively set to start on Monday, June 10, delivering his homemade, all-natural ice creams by bike. Hess’ operation will serve the 4-mile radius surrounding the Ypsilanti water tower, selling single-serve items (think ice-cream-truck style) such as all-natural popsicles and ice cream tacos. Hess also has a website where customers can order his treats by the pint to be delivered right to their front door. Pint $9; single-serve item prices vary.
