Career comes full circle for Aaron Wahl

Aaron Wahl's first job was at Tom's Ice Cream Bowl. Now he is the manager.

ZANESVILLE – Sometimes what goes around, comes back around. It did for Aaron Wahl.

“As a kid I was all over the place with what I wanted to do,” he said. “Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl was my first job when I was young. I worked there a few years and then tried some other things.

“When I was working at Tom’s in my teens,” he continued, “I was in a band with my best friends. We were certain we were all going to be famous, but that all changed. Then I wanted to be a photographer and I did that for five years on the side while I spent 17-plus years in retail management.

“Honestly, I thought I would stay in retail forever,” he added. “But I eventually wanted a change of scenery. I switched to restaurant management as my full-time job, but I started working one or two days a week again back at Tom’s.”

Today Wahl is manager at Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl.

“Tom’s never left my heart through all those years,” he said. “Eventually Joe (Baker, Tom’s owner), after many talks, convinced to come help run the place. I mean, my favorite job as a kid is now my career. I’m pretty darn happy about that.”
