Victor Klein, owner of Ice Cream House, 873 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY.
Open 1 year.
#1. What do you sell?
A: Kosher ice cream, 50 flavors total
#2. What sparked your interest in this particular field?
A: I’ve always loved ice cream. I eat it all the time, breakfast, lunch and supper. My favorite flavor is coffee.
#3. From a business owner’s perspective, what is your impression of Bedford-Stuyvesant?
A: I grew up in Crown Heights, but I now live in Borough Park. This Bed-Stuy location is actually the third one I’ve opened. I have two others: one in Flatbush, and another in Borough Park. But this location does very well; it’s very surprising how people come from all over, even Manhattan.
#4. Can you share something interesting about yourself or the store?
Aside from kosher ice cream, we also have a big selection of non-dairy, vegan ice cream. And we also have a big salad bar!
