2 Sisters Frozen Custard

Local Frozen Custard Shop

Last Sunday evening, we had just finished having a delicious meal with friends. On our way home, I was having a giant sweet tooth craving. Around seven o'clock at night, most good places are closed. Driving on 147th and Cicero in Midlothian, IL I couldn't help but notice the glowing lights coming from 2 Sisters Frozen Custard. Tucked away in the plaza, the green and yellow lights called my name. 

Walking into the shop, I was extremely excited to get my sugar fix. Greeted with a delight smile, I looked over the menu. The menu had a variety to choose from. We couldn't help but order the Pumpkin Pie Concrete and Abby's Brownie Special. While waiting for my order I was as anxious as a kid in a candy store. The warm feeling, the carmel, vanilla, pumpkin pie aroma were rushing over me. I wanted to jump over the counter and stuff my face while the guy was working on my masterpiece. I didn't of course, it would have been wrong and I had to stay calm. I figured if I acted deranged, I wouldn't receive what looked to be heaven.

We sat outside the shop, on a round patio table and chairs. Across a father and son whom also were enjoying their experience. The moment the spoon touched my tongue I was in love. The pumpkin pie, so warm and perfectly cooked. Soft, tasteful, and the crust was cooked just the way I like it, hard. The frozen vanilla custard was over the top. It was so rich and creamy. Every bite I took got better. Yes, I should have taken a picture, but to tell you the truth I was in this trance with my Pumpkin Pie Concrete. Interrupting to take a picture of this grand masterpiece didn't cross my mind until it was all gone. I did get a few bites of Abby's Brownie Special. The brownie tasted home made, which only grandmas know how to perfect the recipe. Chocolaty and nutty worked very well with the creamy vanilla frozen custard. Covered with whip cream and carmel made it scrumptious. I highly recommend this little shop. Drop whatever you are doing and head over to 2 Sisters Frozen Custard on 4734 W. 147th Street in Midlothian, IL. 

Always remember to support your local shops, restaurants, and stores. They need you as much as we need them. 

**Since I was too busy gorging I didn't take any pictures. I stole these pictures from Yelp.Com... thanks

Local Business

Support Local America!

      As a small business owner I know how important it is to support your local business. It means a great deal to me when I hear customers choose our company because we are locally owned and operated. Originally from Posen, IL, I grew up in the beautiful neighborhoods of Posen and Midlothian. My father, also a local plumber, showed me how important it is to support my local small businesses. Whether it be a shop, a bakery, a restaurant or plumbing store.

      Family owned businesses are the heart of America. Fathers, mothers, siblings, grandchildren, all working together to successfully operate what they are proud of. Walking into a local business, you can't help but notice how much pride they have for the place, and what they work extremely hard for every day. You can even witness a few good arguments between family members, but nothing like the love they have for each other.

      When you spend your money locally, not only are you helping that business, you are supporting your local economy. Most of the money spent locally, stays locally. You support your family/loved ones with any crazy idea they come up with, might as well support your local businesses since figuratively they are your family. If you already do so, thank you. If you haven't taken the time to get to know your local businesses, try it out this weekend. You will be very satisfied with the overwhelming of incredible local businesses.
