New "It's It" Ice Cream Outlet Store Now Open in Suisun City
The Family Cookie Company has opened an outlet store right next to its Suisun City Waterfront District factory to sell a wide variety of 'It's Its' ice cream sandwiches and cookie dough, including some colorful playdough like dough that can be cooked and eaten, according to Jay Shamieh, who helps run the family-owned business along with his siblings.
Since 1977, this Suisun City business has quietly made the cookies for the 'It's It,' which has been a favorite Bay Area ice cream treat since 1928. Family Cookie Company also makes a lot of cookie dough that area non-profit groups sell during fundraisers. >>For more on the Family Cookie Company, read this profile from the Vacaville Reporter>>
The factory and new outlet store are located on Spring Street east of Main Street in the Suisun City Waterfront District. >>Click here for a map>>
The shop is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturdays. [Hours updated 8/31/09]
It's an easy walk from the Suisun City Train Station, and just blocks away from a dozen terrific family-owned restuarants featuring a wide variety of cuisines, from Japanese to Mexican, Greek, California Wine Country, and traditional American fare.
