Frio Gelato Seeks Take-Out Business

The Argentinian gelato wholesaler has applied for a permit to create a take-out window on Simpson.

You may know Evanston’s Frio Gelato from local restaurants that serve it, like 27 Live. Soon you may be able to enjoy it at home, too.

Owner Sebastian Koziura has applied for a special use permit for Frio’s wholesale facility at 1701 Simpson St. to create a small take-out counter to sell gelato. He told the city’s Site Plan and Appearance Review Committee last week that the business wants to expand because customers had been asking where they could buy Frio Gelato.

The committee voted unanimously to recommend approval of the proposal to the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Frio Gelato was founded by Koziura and his cousin, Enrique Schcolnik, who both grew up in Argentina.

Please let's not have yet another news topic be hijacked into a debate about concealed carry.

E. my comment was certainly NOT intended to "hijack" a story, in this case the comments up to a point danced around and didn't actually mention the issues of race and a directly related issue..violent crime. Concealed carry was mentioned due to its relevance as a defense against violent crime in one sentence and dropped. The remaining points about rampant and malignant violent crime in predominantly African American areas of Evanston AND THE REFUSAL OF THE COMMUNITY TO COOPERATE with the authorities in seeking to address the problem is what needs attention. The article was about gelato..the thrust of the comments certainly was not.

Why not move to Texas already Jordan? There must not be any bad areas there since there are more guns in Texas than people. I am sure you and all the other gun nuts can fantasize about saving the day by shooting some "bad" people.

Ken...my intention was clear NOT to continue a gun related discussion. You have nothing to worry about the self defense is all about SELF...I don't have any intention of using a firearm to undertake anything than protecting myself. If the local community would actually do the right thing and assist there might be fewer "bad" areas. If Quinn gets reelected moving to Texas might be a real possibility. The glaring flaw in your logic is I would bet there are proportionately just as may firearms in Illinois as there are in Texas...or are you only counting the legally owned ones?

Sigh. Here we go again.
