Texas Ice Cream was started in 2008 in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. An ice cream truck that served fresh, soft-serve ice cream was a novel idea in this part of the country. As we continued to serve more and more folks in neighborhoods from Denton to Fort Worth, we realized that families were anticipating our next visit. Our regular, weekly routes made it possible for families to plan on our arrival with the added bonus of having a little more control of their kids. For the record, kids with messy rooms and incomplete homework never get to have ice cream from the Texas Ice Cream truck. After slowly driving away from a stop in one of our neighborhoods, one driver remarked on how rare it is to see families outside interacting with neighbors, kids playing in the lawn and everyone with a smile on their face. The driver summed up the scene quite nicely by saying, “Bringing neighborhoods together, one ice cream cone at a time.”
The idea for Texas Ice Cream was founded in the halls of SMU’s Cox Business School. David Croson of the Cox Strategy Department and others from the Cox Entrepreneurship Department, helped to foster the idea that a soft-serve ice cream truck would work well in the Dallas Fort Worth market. The business climate of North Texas is very welcoming to entrepreneurs with new ideas and we are happy to continue to grow our business in the area.
From the very beginning, Texas Ice Cream strives to bring the folks of North Texas a first-class truck that serves the best soft serve ice cream money can buy. Our drivers are known for their professionalism and courtesy. We realize there are many places to find ice cream around the metroplex, which is why we truly appreciate when folks support our business.
Whether we see you on one of our neighborhood routes, company party, festival, or any other type of special occasion, we can’t wait to bring you the best ice cream around.
