As most of you know by now, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colchester purchased the old Site of Molly’s Dairy Bar. Many were excited to hear that we will continue operating the Dairy Bar as a social enterprise!
What’s a social enterprise you ask?
By Definition- ”By selling goods and services in the open market, social enterprises reinvest the money they make back into their business or the local community. This allows them to tackle social problems, improve people’s life chances, support communities and help the environment. So when a social enterprise profits society profits.”
Every dollar from every ice cream product you buy will go directly back into our programs for children and youth in our community.
Who will be serving up the cones?
Youth in the community! And it won’t be your typical summer ice cream scoopin’ gig. Youth employed at the Dairy Bar will be participating in our new “Learn to Lead” program. Learn more about this new exciting program here
Although we are pretty thrilled to be serving up ice cream, we’re equally as excited to offer what will be a super creative and unique outdoor space for families. This space will be developed in phases, and we can’t wait to share all the details on the project in the months to come….stay tuned!
Spoiler Alert: HIGH probability that you’ll be able to purchase affogato!
It’s expresso and ice cream! …just when you thought it couldn’t get any better right!
And we’re sure you’re all wondering, what will our new Dairy Bar be called?
We will be unveiling the new name very soon!
