PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s a new Ben & Jerry’s ice cream store in Philadelphia, this one in the heart of center city. It’s located at 1726 Sansom Street, next door to the Joseph Fox bookstore.
Franchise co-owner Katie Bertelson (top photo) says renovating the building for their new enterprise was an adventure.
“Anytime you renovate an old building, you find all sorts of funny things,” she notes. “Like, we found a window in the middle of a wall. We’re like, ‘Wow, this building must’ve been added onto.’ But it was really cool to see it come together. You know, you go from this empty space to this beautiful store, and there have been some cool things we found along the way. Like, the store has beautiful hardwood floors! Things like that.”
