My dad always used to point out that, “ice cream is a happy food.” This simple statement is one we think of often when training our staff members, reminding them of the importance of a positive disposition. We’ve always been able to find people who not only share our love of all things ice cream, but also people who can stand on their feet for a long busy shift and always keep a smile on their faces. It’s no

We’ve been eagerly anticipating the newest member of the Christy Creme family, and he finally arrived on Friday, April 26th, just in time to spend Mother’s Day with his mom! Our longtime manager Abby and her husband Dave couldn’t be more excited about their healthy and beautiful son, Edward. Both

Edward and Abby are doing well and are home from
the hospital. We are
over the moon for the

entire happy family!

Well, we tried our best to welcome an early spring with our traditional February opening, but unfortunately Mother Nature had other plans for our Iowa weather.  Two weeks and nearly 2 feet of snow later, I still can’t complain. For many elementary kids, this is the first big snow of their childhood.  As kids, we loved it when snow would blow in drifts against the wall behind the old building.  We’d dig tunnels...

March 29th is Mom and Pop Business Day!  Of course, Christy Creme is a family business that has employed 5 generations of Christiansens, but you may not know that our own hamburgers are supplied by another local family business, Omaha Steaks.  Omaha Steaks is on its 4th generation of family ownership, and our family has been serving their burgers since 1974.  They’re always made to order, they’re made from qual...

 Our customers often wonder how Matthew spends his winter break.  Some assume that he travels to warmer parts with his time off, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Growing up in Boulder, Colorado,  Matthew developed a love of winter outdoor activities.  He enjoys snowboarding and tries to make it back to the slopes in his home state at least once a season.  He also joins his brother in Montan...

For many of us, Kimball Park has long been a quiet, shady, and secluded place to have a picnic or take small children on a summer morning.  Still, visitors these days can’t help but notice that Kimball could use a little bit of an upgrade.

That’s why our local neighbors have joined the Parks Department to ensure that Kimball is renovated.  Plans include expanding the existing playground, added sidewalks, benches...

My friend Erin and I captured this photo of our dads just before the Frankie Valli concert at the River’s Edge park the other night. We’ve often talked about the similarities in our dads and our upbringing, but seeing the two men together, wearing pretty much exactly the same outfits, was certainly a high point in a fun evening.  We all learn so many things from our fathers.  My father has been imparting an imp...

We couldn’t be more proud of these three staff members for their high school graduations this month.  Maddy, Makenzi, and Delanie are all bright and talented teens who have brought so much enthusiasm and fun to our Christy Creme “family” for the past few years.  As parents ourselves, we know how busy high school kids are today, so it takes a special person to be able to balance the demands of academics and athl...

There aren’t a whole lot of things you can get for a dollar, but my favorite dollar item at CC is the bottomless cup of coffee.  Seriously, our coffee is darn tasty.  It’s a Colombian blend, roasted locally at Pear’s Gourmet, and we grind it fresh for each pot we make.  When you’re looking for your caffeine fix, come join us for a cup.  Or 2.  Or 3.

My students can tell you that one thing that troubles me is litter on our streets.  When I can’t stand the sight of it any longer, I grab my family and we do a quick walk around the neighborhood and pick up all the trash we can see.  It takes very little time, it makes a noticeable difference, and it makes you feel good.  I don’t know of many problems that can be impacted so easily in so little time.  I’d encou...
