Jean Klock Park Concession Area Reopening

The concession area at Jean Klock Park in Benton Harbor will once again be occupied and open for business soon. Licks Sweet Treats and Eats has taken up residence at the concession stand and will kick off the summer season Memorial Day weekend. It plans to offer summer foods from lunchtime until dusk, at what owner Dan Leung calls “the best kept secret in Southwest Michigan.” He says Jean Klock Park is “the best public beach in our area. It is family-friendly, has a huge parking lot, and is definitely a weekend beach.” Licks Sweet Treats and Eats will serve up seven ounce Bavarian pretzels, Red Hot Chicago hot dogs, and frozen treats like Dippin’ Dots, Italian ice, and novelty ice creams. To start the season, since the amenity is new to beach goers, Leung will only have one or two staff members, but will be looking to hire more as soon as needed.
