About Mr Whippy Ice CreamNathan2020-02-04T14:00:30+00:00
It all started way back in the 1960’s for us. With one of the family members of the Humphries family. Who originally worked for Cadbury’s the now well-known chocolate makers. Who also make the infamous ice cream product still known to date the 99. One of his friends also working there at the time decided to leave to start up his own Ice Cream Van business. He rented a van off a local Cheshire based company, he managed to persuade the Humphries family member to follow suit and rent his first ever Ice Cream Van.
His first ever van was based on a 1960’s Commer painted in the Blue & White Mister Softee colours.
After working round the streets all his life, two of his children decided to go into the family business following in their fathers foot steps. Sadly the father passed away in 1999 at the young age of 61. His two sons continued to provide the streets of Cheshire and Manchester with delicious Mr Whippy Ice Cream for the many years to follow.
Still to this very day in 2018. The two sons have continued to follow in their father’s footsteps. Carrying on serving Ice Cream on the same street and round he once did. Now though in 2018 the sons of the two brothers have started to take the reigns and follow in their Grandfathers footsteps by taking on their Grandfathers Ice Cream round. Since then as the street trade started to fizzle away and just about provided enough income for the family to continue, they had to stay with the 21st century and modernise.
