As the temperature has creeped up, the sun has been out and we hopefully saunter into into Summer, that old classic, Ice Cream, has once again been a popular sighting when out and about.
When it comes to Summer Weddings and while canapes are still fantastic, why not be different and have some lovely refreshing Ice Cream as a treat for your guests.
I pass you over to Jack Benny to tell you all about himself and his fab Ice Cream trike….
Who are you, and what do you do?
“I’m Jack Benny proud owner of Benny’s organic ice cream a tandem vintage ice cream tricycle.”
“I hire the trike for wedding’s and all other events in Devon and Cornwall.”
“It’s great fun and everyone is smiling when you serve them ice cream. The ice cream itself comes from Helsett farm in Boscastle Cornwall and is made from there Ayrshire cows milk and cream.”
When and Why did you start your company?
“I started the company in February 2014.”
“Although we haven’t been around long the response has been amazing, everyone loves the fact its a tandem and it always makes good photos of the bride and groom.”
“I found the bike randomly on ebay one day and loved it, within a week I was driving a 400 mile round trip to collect it.”
“I spent a lot of time finding the ice cream supplier, I wanted to have the best ice cream around and many people have fallen in love with the ice cream and the bike since.”
“I live on the coast in Bude so can be found selling ice cream from the trike most sunny days.”
What inspires you?
“Having my own business especially one that get’s to spend much of the time at people’s special day’s gives me so much inspiration.”
“I love to see people’s faces light up when they taste the ice cream for the first time, and their smiles when they pose on the bike for pictures.”
Do trends influence your work?
“Not really I’ve tried to keep the everything classic and timeless, even the writing on the cool box is hand panted to keep in with the look.”
“The only thing that may change with style is some of the decorations, the bride and groom can adorn the trike with any bunting, balloons or anything else they would like to fit in with the wedding.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“My greatest achievement in the short time I have been going is being invited to take part in a professional photo shoot for the Big sheep Amusement park Wedding Fair.”
“This was such a great day, and hopefully the trike will feature in their advertisement.”
What do you see as the future of you Company?
“There are many ideas flying around at the moment, but expansion is the main idea.”
“Being able to accommodate bigger events, possible a second trike, and looking into providing an alternative product on the trike during winter.”
Thanks so much to Jack for sharing his story.
Hiring and ice cream trike for Weddings is a genius idea.
While generally still popular ssometimes guests get canape fatigue, and this is brilliant as an alternative especially if its a really warm day.
And ice cream is loved by adults and kids alike.
