Some summer time businesses already open thanks to nice weather

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - One local business that's dependent on warm weather opened their doors a little early this year.

The official opening date for Tasty Treat on Coventry Ave in north Utica is April 1. They sometimes open in late March, but this year, thanks to a promising forecast, they were up and running by mid-March.

With all the higher temperatures lately, they've had quite the run on ice cream for the month of March.

"The last three days it's been unbelievable sales," said owner Michael Mancuso. "We've seen summer time sales in March, so, it'll be great if it keeps up."

People were sitting outside at picnic tables Monday at nearby Nicky Doodles on north Genesee Street. They've been advertising their March opening for much of the winter.
