This is a little story about how one 50s loving lady (Leanne), found an original 1975 Bedford ice cream van and decided to give her a new lease of life. More than that, it is the story of how memories of childhood can bring a little spark of sunshine in to your day and thats the experience we try to give you with Mimi, our darling little ice cream van.
Looking more than a little worse for wear after many years in service (over 40 now so ssshhh...)
To The Garage
She needed a LOT of work to get her up and running again
Her floor was rotten...
and had to be completely replaced
Shiny new floor
Ready to house the freezers again
Lipstick, Powder and Paint
Time to get pretty again
Back to looking her best
and didn't she scrub up well!
And so she was named Mimi
With a smidgin
we didn't want to distract from Mimi's prettiness too much
Back in Business
Ready and raring to go again
A New Chapter
In May 2016 Leanne allowed us the opportunity of purchasing Mimi and keeping the dream alive. Having both a love for ice cream and vintage style it was the chance of a lifetime to combine the two and share the passion for both with others.
For us, this venture will be about making special memories with our customers and enjoying every moment we have working with Mimi, we hope you enjoy her as much as we do.
