MOUNT VERNON — A local franchise of Whit’s Frozen Custard is coming to Mount Vernon.
Confirmation has come from the manager at Whit’s in Johnstown that the company is planning a location in Mount Vernon. He was unable to give any more details at this time as meetings with architects are taking place next week.
Carolyn Gray, owner of 500 S. Main St. which houses Creno’s Pizza, told the News there are plans for a business to open in the southern portion of the building. She said she is meeting with representatives of an unnamed franchise today and should then be able to announce more details.
Whit’s specializes in frozen custard and offers three flavors – vanilla, chocolate and Whit’s Special Weekly Flavor. Custard is made fresh daily at each location. Fruit toppings, nuts and candies can also be added.
Other Whit’s locations include Granville, Zanesville, Gahanna, Coshocton and Athens, among others.
