Two Brothers Pizza and Ice Cream

Copy Link

Alan Stage, one of the two brothers of Two Brothers Pizza and Ice Cream brought Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company to his restaurant last summer. A native midwesterner, Stage missed the flavors of the Madison, Wisconsin-based ice cream he and his family grew up with. The North Las Vegas restaurant hand-scoops Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company ice cream that Stage characterizes as having higher butter fat and less air, resulting in thicker and creamier ice cream.
