When Jim Sheridan was a kid, he loved
eating frozen custard at a family-owned store in upstate New York. It was a shop that held customers and
quality in high regard. (Jim thought it was a big adventure to go there.) Not surprisingly, the childhood
memory stuck with him... and today, in his own booming frozen custard business, he makes sure that every
to-die-for dessert is packed with fabulous ingredients and a bit of old-fashioned nostalgia.
Sheridan's Frozen Custard is a people magnet. Addicted custard-lovers line up for fixes at all hours of
the day and evening. The reason Sheridan's kicks out such irresistible creations is clear, Jim spent
eight years meticulously researching and planning the details prior to opening his first store. He knew
that every aspect of the business would contribute to the end result. Jim, in his own words, is a "purveyor
of fine things". True to form, he identified the finest equipment around and secured gleaming Carvel
custard machines manufactured in the 50's and 60's. He discovered where to find the most amazing
roasted pecans and arranged to have them brought in from a specialized supplier. Whole berries? He's
got' em! Fresh frozen fruit? You betcha. Jim even uses the best quality clear plastic cups offered by
suppliers. Jim never cuts corners. As he predicted, people are wowed by the final product.
