For ice cream lovers, the summer started off right with the opening of Chicago Mike’s Ice Cream, a new ice cream shop in Highwood.

The shop opened June 22 in the old Highwood Fire Department by co-owners and brothers Mike and Bill Salemi.

Mike and Bill worked to renovate the space while staying true to the history of the firehouse.

In addition to honoring the history of the building, the brothers wanted to honor the city of Chicago, which they did with a mural painted on the wall depicting iconic Chicago items.
