Old Town Alexandria Welcomes Goodies Frozen Custard & Treats

On Saturday, Goodies Frozen Custard and Treats distributed sundaes shakes and treats to a line of hungry customers wrapped around the historic Ice House at 200 Commerce St. The owner Brandon Byrd and his business partner Rozell Moore operates out of a vintage, restored 1952 postal service van. The Goodies food truck currently has pop-up locations at Eastern Market in D.C. and outside of the Ice House in Alexandria. Byrd plans to open Goodies’ first brick-and-mortar ice cream shop in the Ice House by Labor Day.

According to, "Goodies’ menu, which has not changed much since Byrd created it eight years ago, is built entirely around vanilla Wisconsin-style frozen custard.b The custard is slow-churned using a traditional frozen custard machine, not a soft-serve machine so that there is less air in the end product. What distinguishes Wisconsin-style frozen custard is its high butterfat content, about 10% butterfat, Byrd said. Goodies’ custard is made fresh every day at a D.C. production facility. The simplicity of the vanilla custard allows Byrd to create extravagant, Instagram-ready dessert sandwiches and sundaes, which Byrd prides himself on, he said." As per, "Built in 1931, and originally owned by Mutual Ice Company, the city’s largest distributor of ice, the Ice House was used to store ice at a time before home refrigeration was available for most people, according to local historian David Rotenstein. The site is currently being renovated with plans to open by Labor Day, Sept. 7."
