Huron residents and tourists, alike, have been served refreshing and cool treats from the Pied Piper for 69 years! Many terrific memories have been made over that time, and the new owners plan to continue to deliver many more years of good times.
Tony and Pam Frank jumped on the opportunity to buy the Pied Piper in January 2021. Tony had been running the business for 19 seasons and Pam had been helping for 16 seasons. Their dream is to pass the business on to their children and grandchildren. The Franks moved to Huron in 1996 where they raised their three sons.
Tony and Pam realize the significance of their local ice cream shop. They employ about 20 teenagers each year, many of whom are employed for the very first time. They are always happy to see past employees come back as customers with their own families. As pandemic restrictions lift, Tony and Pam are looking forward to this summer!
Before summer gets here, the Pied Piper is open 7 days a week from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm, but starting Memorial Day, you can get their tasty treats from 10:00 am to 11:00 pm. Favorite menu items include nut dips on ice cream and orange or chocolate twists. They also offer a variety of sundaes, milkshakes, and flurries. If you need to grab lunch or dinner, they offer freshly made sandwiches including sloppy joes, shredded chicken, corn dogs, and a new deluxe burger.
As small business owners, Tony and Pam shopped financial institutions to find the best fit for their needs. When asked why they chose VLFCU, their reasons were simple: no or lower fees, the ease of opening their business account, and the nice and helpful staff at the Huron branch. As a matter of fact, they stated that Shelly (one of our Member Relations Representatives) made it so easy for them!
