“We owe so much to the customer base. The support we receive from Owatonna and the surrounding communities blows us away every year,” stated April VonRuden.
Zach and April VonRuden and Tyler and Alex Morgan are co-owners of Blast Softserve. Theirs is a seasonal ice cream shop, the most popular item offered is the house-made cookie dough.
Things that separate Blast Softserve from others are their large serving sizes and the close proximity to the recreational path (which many patrons utilize to bike or walk to The Blast).
“A big thank you to our employees, whose smiles you see out the windows…rain, shine, and sometimes even snow!”— the VonRudens
