A Music Row building has swapped owners as part of the bankruptcy of ice cream novelty company Dippin Dots.
The building at 1204 17th Ave. S. had been owned by Music Square 17 LLC, which was associated with former Dippin Dots owner Curt Jones of Brentwood.
The bankruptcy was settled last week in Paducah, Ky. federal court, with the flash-frozen ice cream giant being purchased for $12.7 million by a group of Oklahoma City investors, led by the Fischer family of oil distributors Chapparal Energy. Among the assets was the Nashville building, sold officially to Fischer Enterprises for $1.1 million.
Dippin Dots, "the ice cream of the future" ubiquitous at theme parks and minor-league baseball games, filed for bankruptcy in November at the end of numerous legal battles centering around whether Jones properly filed patents for his product.
