Domicone graduated from OSU’s Fisher College of Business in May 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, specializing in operations and logistics management.

Jubie’s Creamery is  located in a building that has been vacant for several years. It previously housed Mekong Vietnamese restaurant, which closed nearly a decade ago, Fairborn city officials have said.

Julie Domicone was born and raised in Beavercreek; her father, Fred Domicone, grew up in Fairborn and has owned and operated Domicone Printing on Kauffman Avenue in Fairborn for about 30 years. Julie’s mother, Stacey Domicone, purchased the former restaurant building in 2011.

“Together, we decided to turn it into an ice cream shop shortly after the purchase,” Julie Domicone said last August, when the project began in earnest. “Since then, we have attended conventions, visited with suppliers, researched the industry, (and) tested various flavors/types of frozen desserts.

“We plan to serve both hand-dipped and soft-serve ice cream, all made in-house, one small batch at a time,” Domicone said. “While our menu is not finalized yet, we do plan on serving sundaes, shakes, concretes, create-your-own-cookie sandwiches, and a variety of cones along with other specialty items.”
