A new ice cream shop in Fairborn, co-founded and operated by a recent graduate of Ohio State University, officially opened July 4.
Julie Domicone — who graduated from OSU’s Fisher College of Business last May with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, specializing in operations and logistics management — is the driving force behind Jubie’s Creamery located at 471 W. Dayton-Yellow Springs Road in Fairborn.
Jubie’s Creamery is located in a building that has been vacant for several years. It previously housed Mekong Vietnamese restaurant, which closed about nine years ago, Fairborn city officials 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.”
