The first season of The Frosty Caboose in 2022 was a special one for Andrew Pierce.
“The amount of community support was amazing,” Pierce said, who co-owns the business with Groton resident Dick Brecht.
Located at 107 Homer Ave. in the city of Cortland, the food stand that serves ice cream, hot dogs and more is set to kick off its second season from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. this Saturday.
“We are excited to have a full season,” Pierce said. “Last year we didn’t open until the middle of the summer.
The menu includes a few new items in addition to all of The Frosty Caboose favorites.
The Frosty Caboose conducts business from a refurbished 30-ton 1945 Lehigh Valley railroad caboose. The area includes plenty of outdoor seating in a “relaxed neighborhood atmosphere,” Pierce said. The business is also handicap accessible.
“We are excited to offer great ice cream and food specialty items, but what makes us special is the overall experience,” Pierce said. “There is no place like it in the city of Cortland.”
