What’s going on @ KingKone?!?

Meet Our Kone Krew (team member)

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing a quick bio of our team members who help make The Kone so special. Before purchasing The Kone, my husband and I were told that the hardest part would be to find honest, hard working teenagers who will serve our loyal customers with a smile EVERY single time something is handed out the window. We are happy to report that these kids still exist, and with my husband and I having other full time careers and 3 little kids we couldn't do it without them. I never thought I would be involved in the ice cream business, but for someone who sits behind a desk all day, seeing these kids and serving our customers has been an absolute blessing! Thanks and enjoy!

JimandRita SchaeferMaddie is great! She waited on us last week when winter decided to make yet another appearance. We're pretty sure she got pretty chilly inside there everytime she had to open the window to wait on (surprising how many people came out there that day) customers. She's incredibly sweet and we love her sense of humor!1   ·  15 hours ago

About King Kone…

Like most young kids, Gail Hewitt never could eat the big pile of broccoli on her dinner plate – but magically found just enough space for a big bowl of ice cream smothered in chocolate sauce for dessert. After all, her mother told Gail and her 4 siblings: ‘Your dessert room is an entirely separate room in the house!’

Today, Gail and her husband, Mitch, run King Kone with this same mantra: Everyone has a little room for ice cream! Both born and raised in Chardon, the Hewitts love living in and investing in the local community, and believe that ice cream should be a delicious family affair. In fact, you can find their 3 kids helping with the business: Caleb overseeing ‘quality control’ or so he thinks, Briella providing service with a smile, and Colton – well, he’s probably drinking a strawberry shake on the patio.

So finish that broccoli (Gail does make her kids eat some vegetables now), pack up the whole family and come down to King Kone for a sweet treat and even sweeter memories!
