"We are doing the old-fashioned, Maryland's-own snowball," owner Kyle Algaze said, noting the shack offers flavors like egg custard and tiger's blood. "I'm from Florida, so having no real interaction with a snowball stand, this was a fun interaction to get into what the community likes."
The stand is open from noon to 8 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. Algaze expects to open it every day next summer.
Algaze took over the shack at the same time he opened Iron Rooster in Canton. He first considered opening a hamburger stand there, he said, but frozen dessert became a better option when the shack wasn't outfitted with the equipment for a hamburger stand.
"It's authentic and it's also approachable," he said.
In addition to Canton, Iron Rooster has locations in Annapolis and Hunt Valley, with another set to open at McHenry Row in Locust Point by the end of August.
