The city’s Ice House could be back in business if Goodies Frozen Custard & Treats has its way.

The carry-out frozen custard provider applied for a special use permit to operate in the old Ice House at 200 Commerce St.

Goodies is a food truck service that provides Wisconsin-style frozen custard and various baked goods, including donuts, in the D.C. area, according to its website.

If approved, the Alexandria location will be the company’s first brick and mortar restaurant. It would act as a walk-up, carry-out frozen custard stand serving frozen custard and various baked goods from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., according to the SUP.

If the SUP is approved, Goodies will open in 2020, according to the SUP application.
