Treat Dreams will double its kitchen space and extend its dining room to accommodate business growth.
Ferndale ice cream shop Treat Dreams is planning a major expansion that will extend their kitchen and dining room to accommodate the growing business. Owner Scott Moloney says the $50,000 plan involves taking over the space next door, where PakMail is currently located. Construction will start in mid-February and is expected to shut down the store for no more than three weeks. Treat Dreams will double the size of its kitchen under the new plan - "which is huge for us because we're out of freezer space," Moloney said. It will also triple the size of its dining room. The renovation includes new flooring and furniture. "It's going to be a total makeover," he said. "I'm real excited to get this going." The shop, located at 22965 Woodward, …

Ready to choose Ferndale Patch's ice cream flavor? Patch has partnered with Treat Dreams to host a flavor contest. Last month, you shared lots of creative ideas on what you thought would make a great "Patch-y" flavor. We handed your ideas over to Treat Dreams owner Scott Maloney and he chose his top five.
