I want to introduce you to a small business idea that my brother Paco and I are currently working to make a reality. We decided to combine two things that we love and create a premium alcoholic ice cream and sorbet brand: Ice Cream Fete - www.icecreamfete.com (site still under construction)
What is a fete you ask? Fête = a large party, celebration or festival.
Paco and I locked ourselves in the lab aka the kitchen, making countless batches to perfect the first four Ice Cream Fete flavors. We then then invited some friends to sample the flavors and provide feedback. Our product debuted to raving reviews, with our friends loving the alcohol infused deliciousness as much as we did. At the event, the early arrivers bought out the entire inventory of alcohol infused ice-cream, while others placed orders for pick-up and delivery. The tasting party was a great success, and we just want to say thank you to everyone who came out to support. Second, we would like to thank everyone who continues to place orders, introducing our product to their friends and getting them addicted to the deliciousness as well.
As we continue to develop our packaging and brand, we just want to keep you abreast on our progress and goals. We have secured a website and an Instagram account. Please check both out. And while we relish at the thought of becoming the number one alcohol infused ice cream brand in Atlanta, we also have our sights set on the national stage.
Short Term Goal: Introduce our brand and flavors to a growing population of consumers
Long Term Goal: Get our product carried by liquor stores locally and nationally, including the largest liquor store chain in the world, the United States Military chain of Class Six and Package Stores.
We are currently selling 12oz cups for $10, but will soon be upgrading to 16oz cups (pints). You might think, “This is an overpriced cup of ice cream” that is until you taste it. You will then realize it is a premium product, with premium ingredients, and is well worth the price. When compared to other alcohol ice-cream brands, Ice Cream Fete is actually competitively priced. Yes, the concept of alcohol ice-cream is nothing new. While there are a few good ones, most of the brands that I have tried seem to tailor to a different audience. Most of the major brands create a product that is supposed to go well with something else, but taste like crapola by itself. Ice Cream Fete is a party in a box and all you need is a spoon for the festivities to begin.
So without further ado, I would like to introduce you to our delicious flavors:
- Wotless: Vanilla w/ Crushed Chocolate (Rum, Milk, Vanilla, Coconut, Macadamia Nuts, Chocolate)
- Vagabond: Vanilla w/ Sliced Cherries (Rum – Milk, Vanilla, Cherries)
- Trouble: Fruit Sherbet ( Rum Almond milk, Strawberries, Mangos, Peaches, Pineapples)
- Swanky: Berry Fruity Sorbet (Rum, Strawberries, Mangos, Peaches, Pineapples, Cherries, Blueberries, Blackberries, Raspberries)
