Check out Ted & Wally’s featured in these books!
The local ice cream shop that focuses on quality and community!
Ted and Wally’s isn’t just an ice cream parlor, it’s an Omaha tradition.
Since its inception in 1984, Ted and Wally’s has maintained its stellar reputation by producing endless barrels of high-quality homemade ice cream made from scratch with fresh ingredients.
Founders Theodore Weber and Dean Kirschenman modeled the business after the popular ice cream institutions they saw on the East Coast. There was something special about each one that separated them from traditional ice cream stores. The process by which the ice cream was made was unique and the two friends wanted to bring that process to the people of Nebraska. Using only the highest quality ingredients, the ice cream is made the old-fashioned way, slow-churned with rock salt and ice. The ice cream is made using a family recipe for the base of all-natural ingredients, including local dairy & eggs, & real sugar (no corn syrup). Many of our fresh ingredients are bought from other local small family-owned businesses & farms.
But that’s not the only thing that makes Ted and Wally’s so incredible. It’s the design, the people, the antique furniture and vintage signage. It’s the attention to detail, the support of local musicians, artists and community organizations. Ted and Wally’s has been an Old Market staple for nearly 30 years. The main chefs in the kitchen today are owners (since 2000) Joseph Pittack and sister Jeanne Ohira. Backed by original owners the Kirschenmans and Julie Gilbert, they have worked at the shop since 1996 & are dedicated to keeping it a small local family-owned business with an emphasis on quality & serving our customers & community.
