CHICOPEE, Mass. (AP) — The owner of a new western Massachusetts ice cream shop says his delicious dishes are “a taste to die for.”
That’s because Petros Mirisis (muh-REE’-sis) is opening his ice cream parlor in a former funeral home in Chicopee.
Mirisis, who already owns a restaurant in town, tells westernmassnews.com he loves taking his three daughters out for ice cream, but it’s always been hard to find a place. He drove past the old funeral home every day on his way to work and always thought it was a great place for a business, in the heart of the city and across the street from the library.
His catchphrase came to him in a moment of inspiration.
Petros Ice Cream is expected to open soon.
