Indiana’s Bubbles Ice Cream Parlor Selected as Senate Small Business of the Day

WASHINGTON – May 5th – 11th is the U.S. Small Business Administration’s National Small Business Week, and U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.), a member of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, today recognized Bubbles Ice Cream Parlor of Michigan City, Indiana, as the Senate Small Business of the Day.

Tim and Kim Martin founded Bubbles nearly 16 years ago, and have been serving ice cream to Hoosiers and giving back to the community ever since. Today, Tim and Kim’s son Zach manages the ice cream parlor, where they employ many local high school students as ice cream scoopers. Bubbles is a sponsor of Michigan City High School, provides ice cream rewards to elementary students who reach various academic goals, and donates ice cream to local philanthropies.

“Bubbles has become a community staple and gathering place for the families of Northwest Indiana. The family-run business provides Hoosier jobs to rural communities, while also supporting schools, charities, and non-profits,” said Senator Young. “They are a prime example of a small business’s ability to provide a great product, a welcoming smile, and a helping hand all in a day’s work. I congratulate the Martin family and all of the employees at Bubbles Ice Cream Parlor for being named the Senate Small Business of the Day.”
