Are Ice Cream Trucks Still a Thing?
Those of us that grew up drinking Tang and eating Wheaties remember the ice cream man cruising the neighborhood. We’d heard that familiar jingle in the distance and run to grab some money in anticipation of a frozen treat. The sound of the ice cream man was exciting, but even more exciting was getting that perfect character face with the crazy gumball eyes. Life was great.
The days of the ice cream man cruising the neighborhood are pretty much gone. While there are still some trucks that do neighborhood routes, the majority of ice cream trucks now cater. Kids today are inside the a/c playing video games or watching their favorite tic toc videos. Many cities have ordinances prohibiting the use of the classic ice cream man music box to play that familiar music. Gas prices and insurance prices have skyrocketed making neighborhood routes less profitable.
Many ice cream trucks, such as Danny’s Ice Cream Truck of Austin, have reworked the business model and now specialize in catering. Danny’s has been catering since 2010 and recently started catering in the Austin area. Our goal is to create some nostalgic memories for a new generation. We cater events of any size.
