Hibbard's custard, Lumber Jakes coming to Sweeney Street

Hibbard's custard and Lumber Jakes coming to Sweeney Street


Tonawanda News — Other adapted dishes will be offered with local flavor, like the Oliver Street Shuffle, beer-battered bratwurst with sauerkraut and German mustard.

On the subject of custard, Hibbard is known for the business begun in Lewiston in the 1930s, featuring a custard made using trough machinery that results in a denser-than-usual ice creamtreat.

The company will have two freezer-bikes (bicycles mounted with a custard freezer on the front) to sell the famous delicacy at downtown events like Taste of the Tonawandas. 

“It’s just another piece of the puzzle here on the water to bring people into the community,” Wankasky said.

The property, owned by Mike Wachowicz, is located next door to the relatively new Templeton’s Landing banquet hall, as well as the newly renovated Remington Lofts residential/business complex.
