We receive your order in the store, then swirl your requested flavors and blend any drinks ordered. Our team then freezes your order in a special blast chilller that is designed to keep your soft serve frozen through the delivery process. Toppings are packed fresh in to-go containers and kept "on the side" to maintain the best quality. After your order leaves our shop, the delivery or courier service gets it to you as quickly as possible. When you receive your order, you get to top your sundae however you choose, just like in our shops. Still curious?
