Hey friend! Thanks for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter Page and even more, thanks for thinking of us as a local brand worth supporting!

We have been so grateful for your love and support up to this point and we look forward to the road ahead. This journey would not have been possible without you and together we believe that you will help Lolly's bring more joy to more people for years to come. We have our sights set on our Dream Location and through this Kickstarter, you can help us get there! Check out our fun rewards and see where you want to jump on board!

If you are new to this awesome community or this is the first time you're hearing of us, we would love to welcome you into this story...here's a glimpse of the story of Lolly's.

My wife (Jacklyn) and I met at JMU and one of our frequent date spots was the local Ice Cream spot in Harrisonburg, VA (Shout out to Kline's Dairy Bar!!!). For over 10 years we have lived in Hampton Roads and for a while we asked ourselves, "Where are all the local Ice Cream spots?" Classic, old-fashioned, homemade, delicious Ice Cream. We thought that we needed a place that our community could rally around, a timeless gem to take pride in. Finally 10 years in, Jacklyn said, "Joey, why don't you just try it and see where it goes?"

That was the beginning, then me (Joey) and my dad (Papa Dom) got to work, developing a brand and building relationships with people in this incredible community. We wanted to design a food business that would bring people together, put smiles on their faces and serve delicious Ice Cream.

We are a family business, built around family and named after the family dog. Lolly was one of those dogs who wanted the whole family together at all times. We named the company in her honor because what she was to our family, we want to be to our community.

It has been amazing to watch you all grab hold of this idea and take it to those who you love the most. We have customers who have brought our Ice Cream to family and friends in the hospital. In one occasion it was the only thing that a friend in the hospital wanted to eat and in another instance it was the first food consumed after having a baby. We've had so many customers buy our Ice Cream not for themselves, but for someone they love. This is what Lolly's was designed to do and how you all have taken hold of it has been amazing to watch!

So...NOW WHAT? The dream has always been to create an Iconic Ice Cream Shop in Virginia Beach and we are now ready to take the next step. There's a chance for us to be at an amazing location and just like everything else we have done to this point, we need your help to get us there :). This Kickstarter is an opportunity for us as a community to build something special together. We promise to continue to provide you with a space to make memories with friends and loved ones and of course we are committed to delicious Ice Cream ;).

Thanks for your continued support.

Thanks for helping to turn this dream into a reality.

Thanks for being willing to share joy with others in our community and for using Lolly's as a means to do it.

We are so excited to see what happens as we continue to work together to bring more joy to more people right here in our beloved Virginia Beach! Thanks for helping us to get this dream Kickstarted!

Sincerely,

Joey
