King’s Ice Cream Coming Downtown


Downtown Milford, Inc. has announced its partnership with King’s Homemade Ice Cream of Milton and Lewes. King’s will operate an ice cream business along the Mispillion River in Downtown Milford beginning Tuesday, July 3.

“We’re excited to expand our operation to Milford this summer,” said Rudy Spoor, owner of King’s Homemade Ice Cream. “We’re looking forward to being a part of this community and setting up our shop in the heart of Downtown Milford.”

In May, the DMI Board of Directors announced their offseason repurpose plan for the Santa House and used the last two months to identify and contract with a local vendor.  After hearing concerns from the community, the Board decided at their June meeting to forego the decision to maintain a Santa-theme through the summer ice cream season.  King’s, therefore, will operate as a typical ice cream shop.  King’s is very grateful for the opportunity to serve the Milford community and hope for a long-term relationship serving local children and their families homemade ice cream

Featuring 10 flavors, hours of operation will be open seven days a week through September from 1-9pm and 11am-9pm on Saturdays, unless an event or Festival is scheduled, where they’ll stay open later.  Cash, and eventually credit card, orders will be taken through the Dutch front door and tables outside will be setup for all to relax and enjoy their ice cream.

“We’re excited to welcome King’s to the heart of Downtown Milford,” Sara Pletcher, DMI Board President, said.  “Serving ice cream will bring people downtown, get them into our stores, and give life to Downtown Milford after 5pm.”

Come November, the Santa House will be readied for Santa and DMI looks forward to welcoming Santa back to his home in Milford on Shop Small Saturday, Nov. 24, to welcome children and hear their wishes for free – just like he’s always done. Until then, welcome to Downtown Milford while you enjoy an ice cream cone or cup from King’s Homemade Ice Cream.
