Two Abbott’s locations in Rochester have closed their doors.
The Abbott’s located on Park Avenue has closed, making way for what is now Frozen Flavors Dessert Emporium. Former Abbott’s franchise owner, Eric Taylor, says he needed a life change, and that he wanted a bit more choice on how to run the business. He says there is no ill-will or bad reflection on Abbott’s in his decision, and that he has a great relationship with people within the Abbott’s company.
Taylor also says he is able to stay open during the off-season, thanks to deliveries. The store offers delivery on any item they sell.
The Mt. Hope Avenue Abbott’s location also recently closed. The location was run by Alex D’Angelo for 11 years. He says the decision was made due to increased competition in the area.
