We cater more than 200 events each year, from office parties and tenant appreciation events to weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, graduation parties and family celebrations. We are scooping our ice cream to your guests—we set it up, serve it up and clean it up!
We provide the ice cream, toppings, napkins, spoons, cups and cones to serve at your event. Ice cream is served in jacketed sugar cones or waffle cones, or Ben & Jerry’s branded cups or bowls.
Our staff have uniforms that they wear specifically for each event. Please contact us if you would like to request specific attire.
If your organization is sales tax exempt, we must receive documentation reflecting the exemption status before the event. If we don’t receive this documentation, we must charge Minnesota sales tax.
Once we have received information regarding the number of guests, type of party, location, time, date, etc. we will provide you with a Catering Confirmation. This Confirmation will include the cost for the estimated number of servings, Minnesota and local taxes, and an Event Management and Insurance charge of 12%.
We normally arrive 30-45 minutes early to set up. If special arrangements are made, we can leave extra ice cream after an event.
We understand that many events have time constraints and we have many strategies available for line management, including printed menus for the line, extra employees or multiple stations. We are able to scoop much more quickly and efficiently than you may otherwise guess!
Our service can be inside or outside. Some situations require that we utilize what is available on site, such as access to power. We will be pleased to help you plan your event, including a site visit at no charge if appropriate.
You may choose approximately four of our 36 scoopable flavors of Ben & Jerry’s super premium ice cream, Greek Frozen Yogurt, or sorbet. We enjoy consulting with you on an appropriate flavor mix. We highly recommend a sorbet at each event—we have several excellent choices and they are dairy-free and fat-free. Our ice cream products are certified Kosher.
