NEW CANAAN, CT — Gofer Ice Cream recently opened a new shop at 103 Main Street in New Canaan, the company’s sixth location and third franchised shop in Fairfield County, according to officials.

“I’m proud of the team and my family for helping get us this far,” said founder and Greenwich native Jay Ragusa. “They say success is never a straight line, and we can prove that. Despite recent setbacks including a fire at our original location in October 2019, and the recent pandemic, we have been very fortunate to have built a business and brand that customers, crew members and franchisees seem to love.”
