Ice cream is the best whether you want a scoop in a sugar or waffle cone or a milkshake.

Montana isn't known for having national franchises open ice cream shop locations. Places like Ben & Jerry's don't have a location in Montana and have no sign of opening a store anytime soon.

Haagen Dazs has been around for over 60 years and can be found in any grocery store in America. The ice cream giant has ice cream pints, bars, and more that folks can enjoy daily.

To open a shop like Haagen Dazs in West Yellowstone is a stroke of genius. The town might be small on one hand, but millions of tourists visit the area during the summer. You won't find another ice cream shop for 100 miles. They have a monopoly in that market in West Yellowstone.
