“Custard is like ice cream, only better”: Frozen custard shop to open in downtown Brandenburg


Newsroom Coordinator

Meade County residents and visitors will soon be able to enjoy a cup of frozen custard when they’re enjoying the scenic riverfront in Brandenburg.

Main Street Creamery, owned and operated by Tracy and Tony Whitaker, originally of Wisconsin, is a veteran family-owned business that will offer six different flavors of custard with 27 different available toppings.

“Custard is not a common product in Brandenburg,” said Tracy. “We wanted to bring some of our roots of Wisconsin into Brandenburg.”

The couple believe that their location at 134 Main Street, Suite AO will allow them to provide customers with an experience, not just an outstanding product. With the river just a few hundred feet away and the Buttermilk Falls Trail and park a short walk from the storefront, they’ll be able to provide folks with a cool treat on a hot day.

“Customers can come get custard and sit outside and watch barges go down the river, or they can get it for the walk at Buttermilk Falls,” Tracy said. “We are blessed to be right down the way from Ramsey Field where families can come and have a custard after a game. Jailhouse Pizza is right there also, so they can walk over after having lunch or dinner.”

The business will have a 1950s aesthetic inside, complete with period-appropriate décor and atmosphere. They say that they plan to eventually install a jukebox and other pieces that will help enhance the 50s feel.

They say that they would love to eventually be able to expand and start offering milkshakes and other treats. They hope to be able to make their own flavors of custard for customers to take home and enjoy.

Once they open, their hours will be from noon to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from noon to 10:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

A ribbon cutting will be held for Main Street Creamery at noon on April 10. The first 100 visitors will receive a free taco from The Locals, as well.
