Hello! Ice Cream and Gelato debuted in 2013, serving up delicious, made-to-order recipes ranging from traditional items like pistachio gelato and strawberry sorbet to inventive iterations like sesame fig gelato and coated gelato pops.
“The concept was to reinvent the classic ice cream truck, but upgrade the menu for today’s foodie culture,” says owner Margaret Schankler. “I found a vintage truck to restore, began training with an Italian gelato maestro and was ready to go after about one year of research and development.”
Ingrid, the name of Schankler’s 1965 International Metro Van, rolls up to parties, weddings, festivals and other special events. The vehicle’s vintage appeal includes a staff dressed in Bermuda shorts and bow ties.
