The Frosty Caboose is a food stand that serves ice cream, hot dogs and more. It’s located at 107 Homer Ave. in the city of Cortland, and it is thriving in the area.
The Caboose opened this summer on July 10. The staff at the Frosty Caboose serves their food from a refurbished 1945 Lehigh Valley railroad caboose. It’s quickly becoming a popular location in the city.
“People love it. It’s in a great section of town. You can drive or walk to it. It’s centrally located and it’s just a fun atmosphere,” said Andrew Pierce, a Cortland native and SUNY Cortland Class of 1997 alum. He co-owns the Frosty Caboose with Dick Brecht, who also owns the Frosty Cow in Dryden and the Ice Cream Caboose in Groton.
Pierce noted there is plenty of outdoor seating at the Caboose.
“It’s a nice setting, with quick meals,” he added, noting the array of hot dogs, sausages and a unique selection of ice cream. Pierce also mentioned that the stand serves philly cheese steaks on Wednesdays.
Pierce said the Frosty Caboose is looking to hire community members or college students who have previous experience at an ice cream stand.
