Mildura is about to get a new ice cream shop with the Royal Copenhagen Ice Cream and Dessert Bar opening soon in 8th Street.

The first shop was opened in Manly in 1983 with the franchise expanding later to Brisbane and Adelaide,

In recent times two regional franchise stores have opened in South Australia – at Hahndorf and more recently Mt Gambier.

The thirteenth store in the Franchise will be in Mildura at 134A to 136 8th street Mildura with a face book page appearing on Monday and a call for those interested in seeking a position to provide a work resume.

Royal Copenhagen Ice Cream is an Australian company founded in 1982 by BT Wykoff after he imported the first circular gas fired cone cooker from Denmark.

His intention was to introduce an ice cream parlour, based around waffle cones fresh off the cooker being filled with freshly made ice cream, all made on the premises from authentic Danish recipes.

The Danish theme continued into the store design and uniforms.

The first shop opened in December 1983 on The Corso in Manly to a fascinated and enthusiastic public and still draws and excites its customers today.

Back then, the franchise offered one product, a giant freshly baked waffle cone containing two large scoops of Danish style ice cream, made in house and fresh each day.

 It was called The Regular and remains the most popular product for the franchise today.

The next outlet opened on Cavill Ave Surfers Paradise in 1984.

The waffle cone and freshly made ice cream remain the focus of the business while  the company  continues to develop new products and flavours.
