RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — Sibel & Pierre Berberoglu celebrated the 10th anniversary of their Ben & Jerry's ice cream parlor in Ridgewood Tuesday night with a special guest — Ben & Jerry's co-founder Jerry Greenfield.

"It is always a treat to get out to visit a Ben & Jerry's scoop shop, but to visit Sibel and Pierre's shop in Ridgewood is an experience above and beyond," Greenfield said. "The staff and the community are so supportive and the shop is vibrant and looked incredible."

Greenfield hung out at the Franklin Avenue parlor for two hours, scooping ice cream and taking pictures with fans.

Store manager Michelle Tavares was starstruck.

"It was so thrilling," Tavares told Daily Voice. "He is a real peace, love and ice cream kind of guy."
