Sub-Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream is now open at 9315 Spencer Hwy. (next door to MOD Pizza and YoYo’s Chinese restaurant). Drawn to the idea of “customizable food”, Jerry and Naomi Hancock wanted to apply this to desserts. With a background in chemistry, Jerry developed a method to freeze ice cream using liquid nitrogen. This cool way to eat delicious ice cream became the first Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream restaurant in 2004. Kids love watching the science behind their favorite dessert, and you will love the fresh taste of ice cream that has not been sitting in a freezer. Be sure to “like” their Facebook page at
