Ice cream service that grew up on the West Island
Starting in 1983, thousands of visitors made summer sojourns to Pickrell’s Ice Cream Shop in Pointe Claire Village. And they kept coming back for our high quality, friendly service, big portions and clean premises.
Then in 2003, disaster struck. A fire destroyed the Ice Cream Shop that had been the summer heart of the village. Sadly, it was impossible to rebuild.
Pickrell’s takes ice cream mobile.
After the fire, we decided to pull a page from the music industry and go on the road. We positioned ourselves as a one-of-a-kind ice cream service that catered corporate or public events where families were the main guests. It has been a grand success. Now, we could bring our Pickrell hospitality and ice cream expertise to events in and around the Island of Montreal.
We like to think of ourselves as “The Rolling Cones.” ™
But we never left Pointe Claire Village entirely. Pickrell’s Mobile Ice Cream is a sister company to Westmount Florist Ltd. Another family business established, owned and operated by the Pickrell family. And built on the same customer service principles that make our mobile ice cream parlour a fun success.
Our clean business practices
Pickrell’s Mobile Ice Cream is a registered Quebec company. We are fully insured to do business on private property or with licensing by the client on public property. Unlike a food truck we do not collect individual payment from customers. Our fees are negotiated and contracted on the basis of the total number of servings in advance and reconciled at the end of the event. Just like any other caterer.
From a health safety standpoint, we have always passed inspection. And since starting our business, we’ve taken pride in providing the safest, cleanest, most hygienic food service environment possible in a high heat outdoor environment.
