“When we first went to Handel’s in Sandy, UT, we fell in love with the ice cream. Then, Handel’s came to our town and our daughter started working there. In our many visits to the store, we became fascinated with the operations and decided that this was something we wanted to do together,” said Jerry Trotter, Co-Owner of the Crossroad Commons Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream. “We chose Crossroad Commons specifically because it is a busy shopping center with a wide variety of retail and restaurants in close proximity. The one thing they were missing was dessert, so we knew we would be a perfect fit.”

The Trotters credit other Handel’s franchisees for pushing them toward becoming owners. They contacted West Coast franchisees and stated that in addition to helping answer their many questions about the brand, they also had rave reviews to share.

The Crossroad Commons Handel’s boasts 1,735 sq. ft. and is a walk-in location. The store will feature local flavors including Black Cherry, Buckeye, Coffee Chocolate Chip, Graham Central Station, Oree-Dough, Salty Caramel Truffle, and more. The store will also offer pickup, delivery, and catering.
