Ozzie’s is a family owned ice cream shop in Greensboro NC. They have been serving the Triad since 2014.
Adam and Betsy Greer are local educators and thought the business would be not only a nice source of income, but also a great place for their five children to learn about business. and their 5 children decided to name the shop after a little diner on Main Street, Jinja Uganda.
The Greer family lived in Uganda in 2010 and 2011 and grew very close to the owner; an Australian missionary who has been serving in Uganda for almost 40 years. The kids thought naming the shop Ozzie’s in honor of the friendship they had with her.
“When we started Ozzie’s, my wife said, ‘Man we need checker tables and we need games and we want to have a spot that folk if they just want to come hang out can keep it simple,’ and that is kind of what has developed,” Greer said in an interview with Fox8 News.
