Just Askin': We all scream for ice cream

When is Oberweis Dairy going to open?

In a little more than a month.

"I don't have a specific date yet, but we'd expect late November," said Joe Oberweis, the firm's president and CEO.

When the project was announced in December, Oberweis Diary had hoped to open the store in the former Atlanta Bread Company location on South Neil Street this summer.

Oberweis Dairy closed on the property in May, and a building permit was issued at the end of June.

In the past couple months, construction has picked up, with crews redoing the facade and taking down the Atlanta Bread Company signs.

The company has also started taking applications for jobs at its Champaign location, which will also include a That Burger Joint hamburger restaurant.

This shop and another in Bloomington will be the first expansion into downstate Illinois for the popular, Chicago-area ice cream company.
