GREAT FALLS — Normally, the Likity-split ice cream truck starts operating in the summer, but since they are doing school at home right now, when the books and computers go away, part-owner Aiden Heffernan loads up in the truck and heads out to serve Great Falls.

With COVID-19 restrictions still in place for some businesses and with schools currently closed, the Likity-split team decided to start early.

Aiden said, “Everyone is inside and kind of cooped up, and we thought our ice cream truck would kind of cheer them up a little bit.”

He says they wanted to take steps to make sure customers are staying safe by wearing gloves and masks. They also added a hand sanitizer station at their counter, and since their frozen treats are pre-packaged it adds another level of safety.

“It’s a lot easier for our customers to sanitize it themselves when they get home if they would like to,” says Aiden.

You can find Likity-split right here on Facebook, where they post updates about what neighborhood they will be at each night.

Aiden also said that if there are groups that would like them to come for a birthday party or small gathering, you can reach them at their Facebook page to make arrangements. They do ask that social distance guidelines are followed at such gatherings.
