An ice cream shop with locations in Cedar Rapids and Marion expects business to heat up as it heads into summer, and they want to be ready to accommodate area residents looking for sweet treats to help them cool off.

If you're a teen or adult looking to work in what one employee told KCRG is a "super-fun environment" you could earn an extra $200 as a signing bonus for applying at either of Parlor City Ice Cream's two locations. They are at 1936 42nd St. NE and 955 29th Ave. in Marion. It won't open its 42nd St. location until it's properly staffed.

Their website says Parlor City Ice Cream (not to be confused with the restaurant located in NewBo) has been serving customers in this area since 1962, over 50 years! Local, family-owned business featuring Soft-Serve Reduced-Fat Ice Cream, and our Famous Low-Fat Yogurt of the Day. We offer Over 50 different Shake and Malt flavors, so you might find it hard to pick just one! They also offer a full lunch and dinner menu.

They are looking to widely expand their current staff from 8 part-time and full-time employees to at least 25 per location. Interested, hard-working applicants can print off the PDF application here and turn it in in person. You want the moolah, and the rest of Cedar Rapids wants the cool concoctions they serve.

Both locations follow CDC guidelines for the safety of customers and staff. The Marion location across from Linn-Mar is open year-round but throughout the pandemic has been offering carryout only.
