Quad-City dieters looking for a low-cal treat that won't blow their diet can now enjoy Country Style Ice Cream at Bettendorf's Hy-Vee cafeteria! The first cones of the "Taste Like Homemade" soft-serve product were served up last month. Country Style's original rich vanilla and new dark chocolate flavors are being served separately and in twist cones or cups and are being very well received.
Hy-Vee Dietician Stacy Mitchell, a long-time fan of Country Style, was surprised to see how healthy a choice Country Style is, compared to other frozen confection. "Talk about a really satisfying treat that can fool you! I've even said to my family, ‘I don't want to know how many calories are in this stuff.'" Both Country Style flavors, even if consumed in a one-cup serving is 100 calories less and about half the fat of regular soft serve. It also has 2-3 grams less of saturated fat. Country style is also gluten-free, kosher and contains no high-fructose corn syrup. According to Mitchell, even diabetics can enjoy Country Style, as a single carbohydrate exchange, if they savor a half-cup serving. Customers at the Bettendorf Hy-Vee can now package quart-size containers to serve at home. Country Style is also available in the Milan Hy-Vee.

An ambitious young business owner is helping expand the roots of an ice cream hot spot that got its start in the Quad Cities with the Grand Opening of the local chain's newest franchise on 53rd Street just east of Division in Davenport. New Country Style Ice Cream and Hawaiian Style Coffee owner Cristina Sanchez, 26, is pleased to offer the community another convenient location to visit the popular chain, despite an economy that can often present a roadblock for new businesses.
"I am extremely overwhelmed with excitement to open a well-known name such as Country Style Ice Cream here in Davenport," said Sanchez. "Luckily, I will have the support of my family to help me out. Especially my Mother, Karen, who will be my experienced latte artist during the morning drive."
Sanchez is no stranger to the industry and spent six former years working on the Country Style team, while also attending high school and college. She remembers joking with current Country Style/Hawaiian Style owner Kent Kindelsperger, her employer at the time, about one day opening up her own storefront.
"He would say, 'One day I'm going to sell you a store.' Now here I am at the age of 26, one decade later, purchasing a Country Style Ice Cream and Hawaiian Style Coffee franchise," said Sanchez.
The Grand Opening will be Thursday, August 18th from 4pm to 6pm. A ribbon cutting will kick off the festivities at 4:30pm, with door prizes and refreshments to follow. Ice cream enthusiasts both young and old are invited to swing by to enjoy free soft-serve kid cones and show their support toward the company's recent growth. Visitors also can take advantage of half-price specialty shakes, available in a variety of mouth-watering flavors, or just stop out for the fun.
