Matt and Eliza Ahearn were surrounded by friends, family along with local and county officials Saturday to celebrate the opening of Wally's Frozen Custard and Coffee Station with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The event was part of a two day grand opening celebration that concludes today. Among the events planned for today include product samples, coloring contests and clowns.
For nearly 60 years Wally's had been a destination for frozen treats on Harper, south of 8 Mile, in Harper Woods.
But the business outgrew the original 700-square-foot building, and the Ahearns built a a new location, on the corner of Harper and Elizabeth.
The new facility features with additional parking, a drive-thru and a 2,600-square-foot building to serve customers.
