Cones Ice Cream is Back in Business

by Jocelyn Ottenbreit

Residents of Martensville have been anxiously waiting for the popular Cones Ice Cream Shack to open for business so Friday, May 12th couldn’t come soon enough. This popular ice cream shack has been a great addition bringing many flavors of icecream and amazing service to hungry residents in Martensville.

According to Alex Garchinski, one of the three owners, the opening weekend was a huge success. “It was great just like it was last year, and we got so much support from the community and got to see so many familiar faces from last year. We were busy all three days in the heat and had a much better start than the year before which has got us off on the right foot. We are so excited to be back for another year in Kinsmen Park. We have all grown up in Martensville and are overjoyed that we can be a part of what makes it such a great community,” Garchinski stated.

They will be adding several new flavours this year including; Strawberry, Nanaimo Brownie; a flavour based off the Canadian classic Nanaimo Bar; Campfire S’more’s; a flavor that is already a hit with customers; Raspberry Chocolate Truffle; which is highly recommended by Alex; and a dairy free Passion Fruit Sorbet that is perfect for hot summer days.

In addition to ice cream, they will have small bags of chips that can be purchased for $1.50 as well as Coke Zero that will be available for floats.

Cones will once again be operated by the same three entrepreneurs that began running this business in 2021; Alex Garchinski, Carson Heuchert and Wyatt Strueby.

“After starting Cones in Grade 11 when we attended Martensville High School we have all continued to grow with Cones and have each finished our first year of University at the University of Saskatchewan,” said Garchinski.

Alex is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in commerce at the Edwards School of Business. Carson is on the road to becoming a Civil Engineer at the School of Engineering, and Wyatt is working on a degree in Mathematics through the school of Arts and Science,

They are at their same location in Kinsmen Park and their hours during May and June are 3-9pm on weekdays and 1-9pm on weekends.

“We are excited to be back and after a great first weekend we can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store, thank you for your support Martensville!”
