In the heart of Denton, small business owners tirelessly work to transform their ventures into legacies that not only provide for their families but also contribute significantly to the community. Today, we shine a light on one such establishment that has become synonymous with Denton’s identity – Beth Marie’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream.
Located on the iconic Denton Square, Beth Marie’s has been serving scoops of joy for 25 years. Every product they offer, from their creamy ice cream to the crunchy waffle cones, is made in-house, emphasizing their commitment to local production. As they celebrate their silver jubilee this year, it’s evident that the love and dedication poured into every ice cream batch play a crucial role in their enduring success.
Recent visitors to the square might have spotted some fresh renovations at the Beth Marie’s storefront. The building owner has applied for a Downtown Reinvestment Grant, aimed at refurbishing the façade. This initiative by the City of Denton seeks to assist downtown businesses with various improvements, from façade rehabilitation to utility upgrades.

What sets the Downtown Reinvestment Grant apart is its intrinsic value to Denton’s character. It’s not just about physical upgrades; it’s about enhancing the very essence of the city. Downtown Denton, often referred to as the city’s “front porch”, beckons both residents and tourists alike with its vibrant arts scene, cultural events, and more. This grant is a testament to the city’s commitment to making Denton a sought-after destination.
Beyond the ice cream counter, the team at Beth Marie’s has a deep-seated dedication to the Denton community. Their philanthropic endeavors, ranging from charity event participation to significant donations, are commendable. Last year alone, they helped raise an estimated $45,000 for local causes.
