The Grand Opening in Federal Way, Washington was a huge success, kicking Jack Walsh and his new store off to a fantastic start. As luck would have it, the rain clouds took a vacation from the Seattle area, leaving sunny skies throughout the day.

Mayor Skip Priest attended, sporting a “Frosty Noggin” while he did the honors of cutting the ribbon. About 200 people attended the ceremony and hundreds more joined Jack for the taste testing that followed.

There was great support from both members of the Chamber of Commerce, friends, and the community as whole. Jack held drawings throughout the day for free ice cream, hats, and t-shirts.

And how have things been going since the Grand Opening? Jack, who has had a steady stream of customers since day one, says, “Business has been going great. I’m very pleased with progress.”
