ATLANTA, March 23 // PRNewswire // -- MaggieMoo's Ice Cream & Treatery has announced that on April 15, 2009 participating Treateries nationwide will reward customers with one free single-scoop of ice cream in honor of Tax Day. MaggieMoo's will create its own "e-cone-omic" ice cream stimulus package for customers that will include MaggieMoo's award-winning, super-premium ice cream. MaggieMoo's is managed by NexCen Franchise Management, Inc., a subsidiary of NexCen Brands, Inc.
The nationwide ice cream social will take place throughout the day, and customers are encouraged to file-in-line at participating Treateries across the country.
