Dairy De-Lite 2024

Comstock Park resident Travis Snook is the new owner of Dairy De-lite on West River Drive

 

Dairy De-lite opens this year with new owners

 

The new owners of Dairy De-lite plan no major changes to the popular ice cream business. They closed on the sale of Dairy De-lite in June 2023.

Travis Snook and his wife Ashley Lefers still plan to offer the homemade waffle cones the shop is known for as well as the Hudsonville ice cream and the popular flurries.

 

“I plan on running it in the same way,” Snook said. “We will introduce some new flavors – sprinkle in some specialty ice cream and specialty flavors.”

 

Snook works as a journeyman mold maker for HS Die and was looking for a new opportunity. He bought the business and building that includes an upstairs storage area that he plans to renovate. He grew up in northeast Grand Rapids and has been a resident of the Westgate neighborhood in Comstock Park for 10 years. He and his wife have three young children.

 

Snook plans to hire about 10 employees including several who want to return this year.

 

The most recent owners of Dairy De-lite were Nate and Raechel Macqueen. Raechel’s father Randy Wrona purchased the shop in 1993. Lynn Meyer, Wrona’s sister and Raechel’s aunt, bought it from her brother after working there for three years. Many employees throughout the years have been family members.
