Kalaris says while they’ve had to raise some prices a bit this year, he wants a ride to the wagon to be affordable for everyone.
“We had to go up this year. We’ve upped a few things by a quarter. But for eight years we never increased the price, and people kept saying, ‘Why don’t you increase the price?’ I said, “Well, because it’s a family thing.” I mean, you go to the Dairy Queen or ice cream parlors, you see three, four people going, it’s $25,” Kalaris said.
