There will be a ribbon-cutting at 5 p.m. followed by Fronana trike racing and a Fronana eating contest to win a year of Fronana fro’ free!

The community is invited to join in the celebration and help us ‘Go Bananas!”. Visit the Fronana Facebook page for the schedule of events.
Fronana is a frozen treat that is made primarily from bananas. Fronana is made from all natural ingredients and served by the scoop like gelato, but contain no dairy, added sugar, artificial ingredients, preservatives, stabilizers or gluten. It is completely vegan and also paleo-friendly. Fronana is a healthy alternative to ice cream and frozen yogurt. Fronana is available in myriad of flavors ranging from the classics like strawberry and chocolate to exciting new flavors like Vanilla Bean Orange Cream.
Fronana was developed by Air Force veteran, Bobby Walker, as a treat that he could enjoy guilt-free, while satisfying his sweet tooth. At the end of 2014, Bobby separated from the Air Force to pursue Fronana full time. The opening of the Creamery and Scoop Shop serve as the culmination of a year of planning and testing that started with the OpenDayton Business Competition in June 2014.
On National Ice Cream Day in 2014, the FronanaMobile, a human-powered tricycle food truck hit the streets of Dayton providing Fronana to local festivals, farmers markets and other events throughout the Dayton area. The FronanaMobile will continue to be a staple of the Fronana business. In fact, we have added two more trikes to the fleet.
About the Fronana Scoop Shop and Creamery:
The new store will offer up Fronana by the scoop, by the pint, as well as an exciting new line of frozen treats like Fronana sandwiches, Fronana Buckeyes, and fresh flair on the classic frozen bananas.
Fronana is committed to taking care of our planet by making thoughtful selection of products used in the production and distribution of our unique frozen treat. The entire operation is very low waste, with most being recyclable or compostable. To date, Fronana has donated nearly 500lbs of banana peels to local CSAs for composting. Fronana is committed to giving back through support of community based events.
The new shop was made possible through the Downtown Dayton Partnership’s Activated Spaces program which matches local businesses to available storefronts in downtown Dayton. Launched in November 2011, Activated Spaces provides potential business owners the opportunity for shorter leases at below-market rates as a way for them to jump-start their businesses and contribute to the vibrancy of downtown Dayton.
