Popular St. Cloud ice cream shop put up for sale


A popular seasonal ice cream shop in St. Cloud is up for sale.

According to the St. Cloud Times, Mr. Twisty has been put on the market with Premier Real Estate Services – with a $339,900 asking price.

Rick Wolf opened the shop in 2009. The newspaper notes it was based off an Aberdeen, South Dakota, restaurant called Twist Cone. The shop is open from portions of March through October.

Mr. Twisty's seems to be pretty popular with some of the locals on Yelp. One reviewer by the name of Tim D. of St. Joseph had this to say about the shop.

"Mr. Twisty's is a local walk-up self-serve ice cream establishment on the west side of St. Cloud, near Westwood. They serve quite a variety of ice cream, ice cream treats, and specialty items. Their cones feature a pair of tiny candy eyes... hence "Mr. Twisty." Strange, but true. My children love this place."

The listing notes the shop's gross annual income is $131,222 and the sale includes about $135,000 in equipment and inventory.
