Word of the day at Frisko Freeze: Shake

I just stopped by Frisko Freeze in Tacoma to find out what’s been their most popular item today.

Without a doubt, supervisor Jamal McGee says, it’s milkshakes and cones. McGee and his co-workers are boxed into the Tacoma walk-up’s tight quarters, which makes today’s sun extra hot. I wrote about such occupations today.

Even though it’s hot, this is a popular time for the restaurant, as hungry and thirsty customers need plenty of replenishment.

“On a day like this, we’re doing like 2,000 in business,” McGee asked how many customers visit the stand on a hot days such as today.

Bruce Peterson ordered his food and sat in his car. Surprisingly, he didn’t order a milkshake or cone. Instead, he ordered stopped to get food on the way to Owen Beach.

When asked about the best ways to keep cool, the 29-year-old simply said, “swimming.”
