Founderâ€™s Past Life/Business:
I moved to the East Coast from Oregon to be a member of Teach of America in the South Bronx. Several years later, I was recruited to teach in a Turnaround school in Boston. While I was teaching, I worked at food events and cafes on the side looking for an opportunity to open my own space.
How The Idea Began:
I have my two year anniversary with 3 Scoops in February. It was an existing business looking for a change that coincided with my search for a new direction.
Favorite Thing About The Business:
The customers! We have a group of regulars who share their lives, families and celebrations with us. With our new vegan line from chef Wheeler del Torro, we also have the opportunity to meet guests who had all but given up on finding a quality nondairy dessert. It wonderful to see the moment when they realize they can get a big bowl of vegan chocolate ice cream!
Worst Thing About The Business:
Sprinkles! They are delicious, but its nearly impossible not to make a mess when sprinkles are involved.
