Our Story / History
Lloyd’s Ice Cream began as one small retail shoppe with ice cream made in the back room. It was located at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and North Fares. It was later torn down for Highway 41. If you are sitting in the southbound turn lane on Highway 41, you would be at the drive thru window.
