The Revolution Ice Cream Co. has never been your typical ice cream parlor. Opening last Spring in Brandon, the unique concept teases your taste buds with new flavors, a cozy atmosphere and a great new concept in ice cream.
Owned by husband and wife team and Bloomingdale residents, Bill and Leslee Workman, The Revolution Ice Cream Co. has put its mark on the community with its delightful ice cream combinations. Leslee is the mastermind graphic designer with a great sense for color and art and adds contemporary looks to the local shop.
Now, the pair, parents to four children, want to take their show on the road with a Revolution Ice Cream Truck to attend local and state events and share their unique concept throughout the community.
“We are currently doing a Kickstarter campaign to start The Revolution Ice Cream Truck to take our unique, handmade artisan ice cream mobile,” said Bill. “You can help by going to www.kickstarter.com/projects/537025907/the-revolution-ice-cream-truck.” The deadline for full funding is Thursday, March 13 and they are already more than 60 percent towards their goal.
“We have had many people ask us to open another shop closer to their community,” said Leslee, “So the best way to get The Rev to the masses is with a truck.”
In fact, in keeping with the unique concept, backers, for as little as a $5 contribution, can have their name permanently etched in the truck, or even have a private ice cream party for up to 100 people. Incentives for all donation rangers have been appealing to backers.
The Revolution Ice Cream Co. is located at 220 Brandon Blvd. in the plaza near Next Level Printing and just after Parsons Ave. A few of the unique flavors include Curried Sky-Curried Toasted Coconut in homemade Vanilla Bean ice cream, or the Chocolate Habanera with rich Chocolate Ice Cream infused with Habaneras giving a light but lingering heat or the Porky’s Delight Vanilla ice Cream blended with crushed bacon brittle.
