Jeremy Hatfield prepares to cut the ribbon in celebration of the opening of the Main Street Creamery & Grill in Hurricane.
The coming of the Creamery to Hurricane was first announced at a city council meeting more than a year ago. Since that time, members of city council and the public have repeatedly asked city officials “When?”
The question has been answered. The wait is over. The Main Street Creamery & Grill is now open and serving. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Tuesday, January 29.
The event was attended by a goodly number that included life-long senior citizen residents who harbored memories of the Main Street Hurricane that they knew as seven and eight-year-olds. “The Main Street, I remember, has returned,” exclaimed one individual. “It was home to Mom and Pop businesses.”
The Creamery is literally a “Mom and Son” business as the owners are Sandy and Jeremy Hatfield.
The Creamery is located at 2759 Main Street (adjacent to Putnam County Bank) in a building that was home to Rooper’s Department Store in the 1960’s. The Main Street of that era and before was a home to gathering places which offered fountain service. The Creamery’s layout and decor successfully capture nostalgia of that time.
The menu features hot dogs, burgers, subs, wraps, and sandwiches in addition to sundaes, shakes, soft serve treats. Regular hours for the restaurant are Monday – Saturday 10:00 – 9:00 and Sunday 11:00 – 9:00.
