FAIRBORN — Fairborn citizens will soon have a reason to scream — for ice cream, that is. Council approved Jubie’s Creamery, a new ice cream parlor with a drive-thru to open in the city.
Fairborn City Council approved the new local business to open on the 400 block of West Dayton-Yellow Springs Road Oct. 16 at the latest regular meeting. The owners said it is an independent business with all items will being made in-house.
“It’s a great location right near [Wright-Patterson Air Force] Base and Wright State University,” Fairborn Mayor Dan Kirkpatrick said.
The building is currently vacant on a six-acre lot and will be rehabilitated. It formerly served as restaurant and car wash, according to Fairborn City Planner Kathleen Riggs. As the item was presented to council, Riggs said Jubie’s Creamery would seat 20 people, include 28 parking spaces, employ 2 to 25 individuals and be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. depending on the season. The owners plan to add a patio, bike rack, additional lighting, the drive-thru and install a metal fence.
The Fairborn Engineering Department is involved in the project as well due to an upcoming stripe change on the roadway, enabling customers to access the business with more safety and ease from West Dayton-Yellow Springs Road. Individuals will enter the parking lot from West Dayton-Yellow Springs and exit onto Stewart Boulevard.
Council members expressed happiness to see a new business established in the city.
“I’ll probably be one of your best customers,” Fairborn City Council Member Donna Wilson said. “It’s a great re-use of the building. It has been vacant for a long time.”
