Old Fashioned Ice Cream Trucks Booming!

Ice Cream Truck


For the old-fashioned ice cream truck business – now serving nostalgia alongside modern-day munchies like the Fantastic Four ice cream bar – business is booming. In northeast Ohio alone, three vendors have recently added to their fleets, including a Brook Park company that has 150 ice cream trucks.

The Philadelphia-based International Association of Ice Cream Vendors doesn’t keep statistics but says the industry is doing as well as ever, and its membership is expected to grow.

A greater variety of treats, sales opportunities beyond residential streets (construction sites and local fairs, for example) and a growing adult customer base are among the reasons, says Lindsay Groff, spokeswoman for the ice cream association.
