GREAT ICE CREAM THAT MAKES YOU SMILE!
The team that brought you Millie’s Homemade is excited to announce their newest venture, Millie’s Ice Cream Truck which will take Millie’s award-winning ice cream on the road to serve more communities in and around Pittsburgh. With your investment, the Millie’s Ice Cream Truck could be rolling into your neighborhood soon.
Millie’s Ice Cream Truck plans to restore and update a 1974 Morrison Bedford to convert into the ultimate ice cream truck. The truck comes from the U.K. and has a vintage European charm that even features right hand steering. Despite its age, the truck runs well but is in need of repairs and updates before it is ready to serve ice cream across the region.
Funding target: $10,000 – $50,000 by 2/22/2018

Millie’s Ice Cream Truck will be the exclusive mobile retailer for Millie’s Homemade ice cream. Millie’s Homemade was founded in 2014 and has seen double digit growth every year. It is a profitable business with a recently added second location and a growing list of retail partners. Millie’s has built strong brand awareness and a loyal following in the Pittsburgh market with more than 11,000 social media followers. Millie’s ice cream has been featured in numerous local publications including the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, The Pittsburgh Tribune, and Pittsburgh Magazine.
The truck will allow Millies to reach more and new neighborhoods and meet customers and ice cream enthusiasts where they work, live, and play. The truck will play a key role in helping to reach new customers beyond current locations in Shadyside and Market Square and will help determine where future Millie’s Homemade locations may be built. The truck will also participate in local events and festivals, and will even be available for rentals at special occasions like weddings. Not only will the truck allow the team to serve Millie’s at new venues, it will also for the first time ever, allow us to offer soft serve ice cream. We are excited to bring the creative flavors and high quality of Millies Homemade hard ice creams to soft serve.
