ORNL Federal Credit Union has picked Razzleberry’s Ice Cream Lab and Kitchen for its second Small Business Counts “cash mob.”
Razzleberry’s was originally a small ice cream parlor, and it is owned by Waldek and Ilona Kaczocha, who moved their business from Pompano Beach to Jackson Square in Oak Ridge more than seven years ago, a press release said.
“Since then, the little neighborhood spot has slowly grown into a full restaurant serving lunch and desserts daily (and breakfast on Saturdays), while also featuring a number of homemade international food products and unique gift items,” the release said.
“Running a small business is tough, but connecting with people and putting smiles on their faces makes it all worth it,” Waldek Kaczocha said. “We are humbled that the Oak Ridge community has chosen to embrace us in this way.”
The Small Business Counts Cash Mob program was created to recognize and show support for all local merchants in the 16 counties that ORNL Federal Credit Union serves. The program includes the promotion and support of various local businesses each month and will continue throughout the next year.
At the event, the first 30 people will receive a $20 gift card to use on ice cream or any merchandise within the store, courtesy of ORNL Federal Credit Union.

There is no requirement for the business to be a member of ORNL Federal Credit Union to be selected for a cash mob. Details of future cash mobs will be made available approximately one week in advance of each event, the release said.
Wednesday’s cash mob is from 5 to 7 p.m. at Razzleberry’s, which is at 201 Jackson Square in Oak Ridge.
A cash mob is a group of people who meet at a local business to make purchases, supporting the business and the community. The first ORNL Federal Credit Union Small Business Counts cash mob was in July in Fountain City.
