Little Man Ice Cream’s newest concept, The Constellation, landed in Stapleton at the Eastbridge development and celebrated its Grand Opening on March 30th. The Constellation Ice Cream shop is named after The Constellation or “Connie,” a four-engine airliner built by Lockheed Martin, an airliner that revolutionized the mid-20th century. The ice cream shop is housed in a 75-foot replica of the Constellation airplane wing. The wing suspends over Martin Luther King Boulevard, paying tribute to the former Stapleton International Airport.
The maiden voyage Grand Opening was a smashing success, celebrated with hundreds of Little Man Ice Cream fans. Customers were encouraged to bring a piece of luggage in order to receive a baggage claim ticket that would be entered into a drawing for a trip for 4 to New York City! Congratulations to the Little Man staff for a remarkable opening and for bringing a piece of history to yet another community.
The Constellation is the fourth ice cream concept developed by Paul Tamburello, founder of Little Man Ice Cream. The Stasko Agency was hired by Tamburello to promote the first concept, Little Man Ice Cream, a 28-foot-tall replica of an antique Milk Can back in 2008. Over the past ten years, The Stasko Agency has provide publicity and public relations services for Paul Tamburello and the Little Man brands. Tamburello has two more concepts on tap for 2019, a soft serve shop called Dang and a Little Man Ice Cream shop at Denver International Airport, a testament to the iconic status of the brand.
