We started Van Leeuwen Ice Cream in the Spring of 2008 out of a buttery yellow truck on the streets of NYC. We set out to revive the classic American ice cream truck and the art of traditional ice cream making using ingredients perfected by nature, not science.
What began in the kitchen of our shared Brooklyn apartment back in 2007 has grown into a mini ice cream empire with stores and trucks in NYC and LA, and pints in grocery stores. Our dedication to quality is tireless and we are constantly developing and perfecting our recipes. In June 2015, we released “The Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream Cookbook”, sharing over 100 vegan and classic recipes along with stories from the past decade.
