Enjoying Zesto, back in 1999.

Despite last week's 10-plus inches of snow, the Zesto Ice Cream located at 5740 Falls Drive opened Saturday. The other three Fort Wayne locations (2225 Broadway, 210 E. Washington Center Road and 6015 St. Joe Center Road) are set to open Friday, says Chris Conner, who owns the Broadway location.
