Sundae School has locations in Dennis and Harwich. They were paired in the finals with Kimball Farm, which has locations in Westford, Carlisle, Lancaster, and Jaffrey.

“We’ve had so much fun with it,” Sundae School owner Paul Endres said. “We know we’ve gotten votes from as far away as Nebraska and Texas because I get emails from fans.”

Endres said he’s humbled by the win, especially against such high-quality competition. “There’s a lot of good homemade ice cream places in Massachusetts.”

The secret of Sundae School’s success? Paul attributes much of it to the quality of their ingredients, including real chocolate chips, fresh fruit in their sundaes, and whipped cream made one bowl at a time.

Nearly 300,000 votes were cast during the WBZ Ice Cream Social on CBSBoston.com, as well as on the CBS Boston Facebook and Instagram pages.
