Denver's frozen factory (Photos)


Over the Fourth of July weekend, Little Man Ice Cream opened its new Denver factory on West Colfax Avenue.

The factory, 4411 W. Colfax Ave., has been under construction for the last five years, but Little Man began making ice cream there last July. The space has a retail counter were customers can order flights of ice cream with various toppings. Little Man will also sell pints and ice cream cakes at the location.

Ted Shultz, the architect for the project said he was inspired by seeing ice cream machines spin to mix ingredients together. He added that he used the theme of revolution throughout the factory, which has windows into the kitchen area so customers can see the ice cream being made. There is a seating area and a small upstairs landing which features a kid space with a slide.

Owner and founder of Little Man, Paul Tamburello, said that he wanted the factory on West Colfax because he was born in the neighborhood and wanted to create a community space there. The factory can be rented out for special events.
