SEMINOLE HEIGHTS — Customers can't seem to get enough of Bill Workman's original ice cream creations.
The owner of the Revolution Ice Cream Co. is expanding from his Brandon location to bring flavors such as Chocolate Habanero, Porky's Delight and What's up Nutter Fudger to Seminole Heights.
"My wife and I were on a trip to Pittsburgh and came across, Oh Yeah Ice Cream and Coffee Co.," Workman said. "They served weird flavors and when we got home we looked for somewhere around here that served interesting flavors."
When they couldn't find anywhere adequate, Workman decided to make it himself.
"We made it out of our home for two years," Workman said. "It became so popular, serving it to neighbors and friends, the only thing we could do was open a shop."
The Brandon location has been in business for almost three years.
Though the Seminole Heights store will be the same for the most part, Workman hopes to expand and include items like ice cream cake and sandwiches.
Workman's flavors are inspired by browsing aisles at the store.
"I see something at the store and think, I want to make ice cream out of that," Workman said. "We do source locally as much as we can."
That means there will be no strawberry ice cream this time of year. However, fall flavors like Pump Up the Yam, sweet potato ice cream with caramel bits and pecans and marshmallows, can satisfy that sweet tooth.
Another way they show local support is by focusing on the community.
"We are doing a food drive right now with ECHO of Brandon," Workman said.
