Big Olaf Creamery, Lakewood Ranch

Anyone who has every been to the Big Olaf Creamery in Siesta Village could tell you about the fresh made waffle cones and great ice-cream. The store which has always been one of the areas favorite ice cream shops is now open on Lakewood Ranch’s Main Street. The original owners of the Big Olaf have opened the new store in the place previously occupied by Brusters Ice Cream. The store’s opening is a welcome addition to Lakewood Ranch’s Main Street shopping district and marks a recent resurgence in leasing in the area which has seen declines in the past year.
