Buckle up: Big Gay Ice Cream is officially ready to start hiring. It's been a few months since BGIC posted its first local help wanted ad for their upcoming Philly location at SouthStar Lofts, when they were putting out feelers for a store manager. Now, owners Doug Quint and Bryan Petroff have signaled via Craigslist that they're ready to begin bringing on and training a full staff.

BGIC has been aiming to open by May, and has already committed to welcoming into the shop all attendees of their book release party at Juniper Commons on April 30.

If you'd like to apply, cited requirements include "a passion for frozen treats," some food prep experience, and a propensity for teamwork and customer service.
