About

A New Way to Get Our Ol' Fashion Ice Cream

This project is about giving new life to an old friend. Mary Coyle Ol' Fashion Ice Cream is a part of the fabric of modern Phoenix. The ice cream and the memories created when visiting Mary Coyle have been a staple for families since 1951, when the Coyle family moved to Phoenix from Akron, Ohio. The ice cream is nothing short of fantastic. This project is about keeping that ice cream and those memories alive for future generations. The new Mary Coyle will be something else from a time-gone-by: a good ol' fashion ice cream truck, serving real ice cream scoops all over Phoenix. In short, you won't have to go to the ice cream because it'll come to you. 

How are we going to do it? With your help, we're going to get ourselves a used truck, outfit it with some freezers and the other gear we'll need to scoop our ice cream, dress it up in the Mary Coyle colors (maybe even with your name on it), and put it on the road. Once we're out there, we'll start bringing you the ice cream you know and love, finding places to park alongside our food truck friends around town and probably a few other places, where folks might just like to have a cone or dish.

A Few Kind Words

We asked a few folks about their Mary Coyle experiences, as well as a few that have been offered free of solicitation. Here's what they had to say about us:

"A friend and I used to go eat at the Thomas store for lunch when we were having a bad day. We weren't drinkers but if one of us had a bad day we would call each other and say " Mary's for lunch today" and the other one would know that meant horrible day. We wouldn't eat lunch we would have ICE Cream!!! Awesome!!! Love and miss Mary Coyle's." - Kym

"Top of my choice is banana split, here at Mary Coyle is the best of the best!" - Jean

"Fantastic ice cream!!" - Chris

"I love your black licorice and banana ice cream, the best I have ever had !!!!" - Linda

"My hot fudge sundae was glorious and next time I might have to go with the larger size." - Paula

And there are plenty more. Help us keep the memories going in a new way, by funding our New Ol' Fashion Ice Cream Truck.

When can I get my ice cream?

Once our project is funded, we expect to have the truck on the road 90 days after that. We'd like to get it on the road by Memorial Day, but that's a little aggressive, so we can't promise that.

Risks and challenges

It won't be easy, of course. Outfitting a big truck to serve ice cream in the middle of the desert will be challenging, but we know it can be done.

Once we're on the road, the challenges only get more daunting. We'll be competing with everyone else on the road serving dessert, but we think our product is unique and that people love it, so we'll be able to handle the competition.
