Ampersand: Where great ice cream & community meet! Ampersand Ice Cream will be Fresno's premiere artisan ice cream shop where you will find hand-crafted ice creams & sorbets in an environment that will inspire community development. 

Here at Ampersand we have noticed that some great things come in pairs: PB&J, chips & guacamole and wine & cheese. We feel nothing pairs better with life than community & ice cream. Heartbreak & love, sorrow & joy, big events & small, all of life is made a little better with people by your side and a scoop (or 2) of Ampersand Ice Cream. 

Ampersand Ice Cream strives to bring great ice cream & community together so as to enrich peoples lives with the sweet things in life.

Risks and challenges

We are so close to seeing our dream become a reality. It is incredibly exciting but it is also a very full and busy time. We are currently looking at possible locations to lease and will begin working as soon as possible to open. Our biggest setback is likely to be city permits and license as they are on a schedule of their own. However, we are ready to take on the challenges and setbacks of our build out and we will do our best to remain transparent as we keep you up to date on our process.
