Plans are heating up for the opening of a College Place business known for refreshing treats.

Pineapple Pete’s is scheduled to open May 23 at 1015 S. College Ave.

The business is owned and operated by Marc Hernandez and Slavik Tkachev. Shaved ice comes in root beer, cherry, blue raspberry, strawberry, banana, pomegranate and more flavors. Other items on the menu include popsicles and floats, plus new this year: slushies, frozen candy bars and canned soda.
