Old Town Churn serves up ice cream to the Fort Collins community
A towering recreation of a hand-cranked ice cream churn stands tall over the other restaurants and stores in The Exchange. Though as of the opening on Oct. 27, the building is still missing its crank.
The opening was headed up by Little Man Ice Cream owner Paul Tamburello who spent more than five years trying to bring his brand of ice cream to Fort Collins. This past weekend, his work finally paid off and provided Fort Collins residents with a day full of fun and community.
“When we had the opportunity to come to Fort Collins, we thought, ‘Let’s just do something akin to (Little Man),’” Tamburello said at a media preview Oct. 24. “We got a big fat no. At the time, we were very frustrated. The city made it clear to us that they didn’t want another Little Man.”
