Smells like a franchise, but I can't find any information on it.

Im guessing that since there isnt any info to be had on Google, or any franchising sites, it may be an original concept.

This is just a guess by following what little info is out there:
Jimmy's Malt Shop
From the pic I'm guessing at 1050 Wright Rd
Owned by R&R Equities LLC
Owned by H James Raltiff
Also owns Evans Ice Cream Operations LLC
May have been at one time the Evans Ice Cream at 108 E Broadway

Seems like too odd of a location for a Franchise... If its good an unique, this location will be just fine, but if its just average, there's just not enough around there to support it.

Close, the lot north of that, but same owner for both lots.

If they can pull off a Manawa "Christy Creme" this could be the bomb.
Isn't there another famous ice cream place in south bluffs near the beginning of the Wabash Trace Nature Trail?

There was an ice cream/burger place there for years. I stopped there for a cone or a malt a hundred times before I drove around the lake. Nobody in the car ever once said "Don't stop there I don't want a cone or a drink lets just drive around the lake." Ice cream treats and drives around the lake go hand in hand. I say build it and we will come!

Do you remember where?
I think this is the perfect place for a burger/ice cream shack.
Even if it is a dive but has good Scooby Snacks for quick picnics, this place will rock.
I wish I had the coin and insight or I would have jumped on this.

It was right there on the corner. It went thru a few different owners over the years. I think it might of been called Misty's for a few years. It started out a shack like a Dairy Sweet or King and in the late 80s they added a drive thru and an indoor dining area.

Looks like Jimmy's will not be the first in Lake Manawa. Doozie's took over and rebuilt the Crumbs Bakery Cafe on 321 Comanche and opened in April. Apparently there used to be a Lake Manawa Ice Cream Shoppe at 4105 Comanche, most likely what Grandpa was referring to.

Now I come back to this thread because of the $750k upgrade to the old 1993 Dream Playground at Lake Manawa State Park. Skins mentions this in the Lake Manawa Improvents thread - don't know how far they have come, but ice cream and good playgrounds...
