Hamilton ice cream stand since 1950 looking for new owners

Sweden Creme owners are looking to sell after five years of owning the longtime Hamilton business.

“Our family has had a lot of changes in the past couple of years,” co-owner Benjamin Price said via social media. “Children being adopted, family more busy with the ebb and flow of life! We always wanted to operate Sweden Creme as a family, and when the day came that we all could not be involved, that would be the day to pass it on to the next family!”

The business started in 1950 as Sweden Creme before a brief switch to various different names over the years, including Big Daddy’s, before Price and his family chose to re-brand it with its original name.

Sale of the business, which serves Dixie Burgers in addition to ice cream, will include the property and the building at 2047 Pleasant Ave., as well Sweden Creme’s website and equipment, plus the training it takes to run such an establishment.

“It will be available,” said Price, who runs Pleasant Avenue Barber Shop next door. “We’re not going anywhere.”

The seven-month-a-year business will hold an open house from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday.

“This will be a golden chance for buyers to walk through our business and ask questions regarding the sale,” he said. “Sweden Creme is a turn-key business opportunity, and we are only entertaining serious potential buyers at this open house.”
