Neighbor Robert Walker to Open his First Fronana Scoop Shop

12 May

Many of us are lucky enough to have sampled Bobby Walker’s delicious frozen banana treat, Fronana, either at a South Park social gathering or a First Friday in the Oregon District. He’s a familiar sight with his bike cart and jaunty bow tie.

Well! We’re delighted to learn he’s opening his first storefront at 27 W. 1st St. next to the First Street Garage. First, however, he has to do a minor remodel, and install some freezers and other equipment.

Bobby is participating in the eighth round of the Pop-Up Project , a program that matches entrepreneurs up with retail spaces downtown to see if they can make a go of their business. We’ll let you know his opening date as soon as we hear.
