Crofton Friendly’s Safe for Now

Ice creamFriendly Ice Cream filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last week, and I assumed the Crofton location on Rt. 3 would soon be shuttering its doors. Another casualty of this economy, on the heels of Borders Books!

I thought about all the times we and many other families had gathered there after school concerts and plays… about the one on one morning breakfast meetings at Friendly’s and the countless outings shared with family. While I didn’t often splurge on my favorite sundae –  a Jim Dandy, with 5 scoops of ice cream, banana, nuts, chocolate, strawberry sauce, whipped cream and nuts, plus a cherry on top – it would become a thing of the past, like Hot Shoppes “Mighty Mo.”

Steven Overly reported good news in yesterday’s Washington Post: Crofton and four other DC-Baltimore region Friendly’s will remain open. 

Maybe if I go to the gym every day this week, I can somehow justify having a Jim Dandy to celebrate that Crofton Friendly’s is safe for now!
