it started with a dream

In 2012, the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership partnered with the Mayor’s Office of the City of Pittsburgh to launch Project Pop-Up, a program aimed at revitalizing downtown neighborhoods. This gave us the chance to convert an abandoned storefront to a gourmet ice cream parlor that funds dreams via ice cream sales! In just two short summers we’ve helped 100 individuals and organizations make their dreams come true, raising over $70,000 to repair churches, marry marines, adopt children, research cures, and so much more… We look forward to making your dreams come true!


Our Vision: We believe that with milk, sugar, and a process we will change the world!

Our Mission is to be a social enterprise that aids others to realize their dreams – one cause, one cone, and one community at a time!
