Sheridan's Lattes & Frozen Custard: Home

If so, was it a good experience?

The reason I'm asking is because I'm researching opening a frozen custard (and espresso) operation of my own on the West side.

Thanks!

I like Sheridan's. They have several very refreshing energy drinks. Always good to offer the 'reduced' menu --LOL.

I wish there was one of these in Douglasville. I used to go to New Orleans when I was a kid and go to Chelsea's, which sold frozen custard. It was SO good. There would be a line from the window to the parking lot every night. Sadly, the place is now closed.

There's a burger place that sells frozen custard in Hiram but it's a good half hour drive from Douglasville and gas is so high now. Douglasville NEEDS a good frozen custard place--all we have is Dairy Queen and Cold Stone Creamery and Bruster's, and NOTHING can compare to frozen custard. It's so much richer than ice cream. Douglasville would be a good second location for you--there's a LOT of people here on weekends because of the mall, and people from Newnan, Carrollton, eastern Alabama, come on weekends. I think the population probably doubles or triples on weekends.

Thanks for the feedback.

I attended a trade show a couple of weeks ago and, as I was walking past one of the booths, the dude asks me, "Hey, ya wanna try some frozen custard?" So, this obscure mental image comes to mind of a bowl of Jell-O pudding that had been slapped in a freezer and frozen solid. Didn't sound real appealing to me. But, nonetheless, I accepted, grabbed the small cup, and took a bite.

O............M.............G!!

This was freaking heaven, folks! Never before had I experienced such a luscious, creamy texture and taste! No wonder they say that God's favorite ice cream store is a frozen custard stand!

Nonetheless, I'm hooked. I was hoping to go to Sheridan's very, very soon. Can't get that taste out of my mind. :-)

By the way, "concretes" were invented by a frozen custard mogul back in the '50's and are the precursor to the DQ Blizzards.

Used to go to the Sheridan's in Tucker when we lived a couple of miles away in Smoketree. Liked it; not enough to make a special trip to that part of the world now that we've moved to a different area of town, and we were probably slightly more likely to go to Dairy Queen or Bruster's, depending on what we wanted and how much we were willing to spend, but I never had a bad experience there.
