First Abbott’s Frozen Custard Shop on Long Island Sets Opening For Saturday, November 18th

Abbott’s Frozen Custard is opening its doors in Lindenhurst on Saturday, November 18th at 11am. The shop is opening at the former Uncle Louie G’s Italian Ices & Ice Cream spot at 198 East Montauk Highway.

As previously reported, Manuel Calvelos and his fiancee Julie Altaner are opening the first Abbott’s Frozen Custard shop on Long Island.

According to Manuel Calvelos, who is getting ready to open the first Abbott’s Frozen Custard shop on Long Island this Fall, the difference between frozen custard and other cold treats like ice cream or froyo is that custard is more dense; it’s creamier than the others.

“We put it into a machine that turns it very slow and gets all the air out,” he said in a recent phone interview with

The other difference is that frozen custard at Abbott’s is fresh. You’re not getting custard that’s been sitting in a freezer for weeks.

“The frozen custard is made on site,” Calvelos explained. “It’s not going to be something where we let it sit in the freezer for months on end and you don’t know when it was made.”

The frozen custard at Abbott’s comes in the same flavors as ice cream but the difference is the texture and the freshness. The store will offer just eight flavors per day, three are the standard signature flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Chocolate Almond. The rest of the flavors are custom and rotate daily.

“People can get a different flavor every day and people will see it coming out of the machine fresh,” said Almeida.
