Peanut Better Toffee

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 DreamCream the chance to revive an abandoned camera storefront and turn it into a gourmet ice cream parlor.


We believe that ice cream can change the world, so we created a new cause marketing model that marries ice cream and fundraising to realize dreams. Over the last two years we have helped over 80 individuals and organizations make their dreams come true, raising nearly $50,000 to help churches fix roofs, nonprofits to host fundraisers, and parents to adopt children.
