Kopps in Milwaukee (actually GLENDALE) offers FROZEN Custard...

Wisconsin is known for cheese and other dairy products....  perhaps you are not familiar with "custard"... particularly "frozen custard."

Here are some interesting view of Kopp's Frozen Custard at 5373 N. Port Washington Road, Glendale, WI  53217
(414) 961-3288

It's pure taste of flavor and dairy products.

According to Wikipedia... 

Frozen custard is a cold dessert similar toice cream, but made with eggs in addition tocream and sugar.

Frozen custard was invented in Coney Island, New York in 1919, when ice cream vendors Archie and Elton Kohr found that adding egg yolks to ice cream created a smoother texture and helped the ice cream stay cold longer. In their first weekend on theboardwalk, they sold 18,460 cones.[1]
The White Hats are traditional
A frozen custard stand at the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago introduced the dessert to a wider audience.[2] Following the fair, the dessert's popularity spread throughout the Midwest; Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in particular, became known as the "unofficial frozen custard capital of the world".[3][4][5]
Per capita, Milwaukee has the highest concentration of frozen custard shops in the world[6] and the city supports a long-standing three-way competition between Kopp's Frozen CustardGilles Frozen Custard and Leon's Frozen Custard.

Kopp's Frozen Custard is a restaurant chain located in the MilwaukeeWisconsinarea. It specializes in frozen custard and large "jumbo" hamburgers. Founded by Elsa Kopp in 1950, the restaurants continue to be heralded by local publications for their quality food.[1] They have locations in three Milwaukee suburbs.
Kopp's was the first custard stand to offer a special "flavor of the day" in addition to the more traditional chocolate and vanillaflavors.
Elsa Kopp opened the first Kopp's stand at 6005 W. Appleton Ave., Milwaukee, Wisconsin (now the site of Junior's Frozen Custard) in 1950.[3] A German immigrant with no prior business experience, Kopp started the stand after her husband, Karl Kopp, developedParkinson's disease.
Some support in starting the business came from Leon Schneider, a custard machine repairman (the founder of Leon's Frozen Custard in 1942), whom Elsa Kopp had met while working at a bakery.
The Kopp's frozen custard stand rose in popularity quickly during the 1950s and was soon seen as a Milwaukee staple.[4]
The Glendale location (5373 N. Port Washington Ave.) is on the site of the former Milky Way drive-in restaurant, the inspiration for the external look of the Happy Days diner, Arnold's Drive-In.
Kopp's is now owned by Elsa's son, Karl Kopp, who also owns restaurants in Arizona and New York
