Hi there! 

To those of you in the PNW communities who have wholeheartedly embraced SÜSU Rolled Ice Cream, we THANK YOU! After our second year as a mobile business we have made friends with many of you, shared our dreams with you, smiled and laughed with you, endured a HOT Seattle Summer with you, and rolled up a ton of delicious ice cream treats for you. 

Beginnings
Beginnings

It is now time for us to roll into a new chapter in our lives and business. Almost everyone who comes through our line (sometimes very very long line...sorry!) wants to know when we are opening a store. Well, we are happy to announce we may have found a location...but it needs a little work. Maybe A LOT of work! But we're going for it! We are humbly asking for your financial support to help with building renovations so our dream can become a reality. And your dream of having SÜSU Rolled Ice Cream every day of the week can also come true! 

Bouquet

Our primary mission has always been to provide fresh flavors using the finest quality ingredients, a rotating menu, and a final presentation that is second to none. 

All Yours
All Yours

For those of you who are regulars, you know we change our menu every 2-3 weeks. And you also know this doesn't mean we have a list of flavors that we simply cycle through. It means that we unveil an all new menu, with never before seen flavors, every 2-3 weeks all Summer long. We plan on continuing this tradition at our store! The best part though is that we'll be able to offer far more than just six flavors, which is currently all our mobile stand can accommodate. Just think of the possibilities! We can have our Tea Menu, our Cheese Menu, our Fruit Menu, our Savory Menu, and on and on and on! (Sometimes it doesn't sound like we're talking about ice cream...we even had a gentleman ask us if our Brie with Smoked Pear and Prosciutto was a sandwich! LOL.)

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges that face us are the same that face every first time parent with a small child. Our baby business requires long hours, sleepless nights, freaking out over nothing (sometimes everything), getting messy, getting more messy when we didn't think that was possible, learning new lingo, understanding when we need to take a little time for ourselves...even if it's just 10 minutes driving in circles around the block blasting the radio with the windows down, testing the limits of our patience - and somehow reaching new boundaries, and being aware that every single day is an opportunity to learn and be better.

And after all that, we realized something. We will do anything for our business. Anything. Whatever it takes to see it grow, survive, and flourish. We are meeting with business development teams. We are networking with restaurateurs. We are attending seminars to help us navigate the permitting and licensing landmines of Seattle and King County. We are applying for loans from lenders that specialize in women and minority run businesses (we fall into both categories). We are putting every penny we have into our dream. We just need more pennies!

We believe in the quality of our product. We believe in our ability to stay creative and innovative. And we believe in you, our wonderful customers. You, more than anything, inspire us to push forward in this endeavor. We have learned from you that a cup of ice cream can make the saddest day a little brighter, and that we all have the ability to get as excited as children over a pretty sweet treat. Please help us continue to bring smiles to our community.
