Silk screening for a new generation
Chris and Dave Fichera founded Stucchi's ice cream in 1986. They sold the company in 2003 but kept the pole barn on Jackson Road that had been their ice cream factory. A few months ago, they put up a retail-like sign there and built a showroom for another venture, iTOPS. "It's a test phase," Chris cautions. "We're not really here for retail," but they have regular hours and a cash register, and sell things in any quantity to passersby. It's retail by most people's standards.
