Vince Petryk had an unlikely career trajectory. While studying at Temple University, he bounced around every profession from plumber’s helper to ditch digger. After graduation, he took what he thought would be a temporary job washing dishes at a local ice cream shop. However, he ended up working his way up the ladder to manager. Eventually landing in Boston, MA, he decided to go into business solo with J.P. Licks. An immediate success, this little shop has been going strong for nearly 30 years. That staying power alone should tell you something about the quality of these sweet treats.
