Originally based out of Prince Geoge this craft ice creamery set its sight on charming Downtown Kamloops. Encouraged by the local movement of craft breweries across Canada in late 2014, Co-Founders Wes Pederson and Kevin Pederson looked to other industries that brought communities together and landed on ice cream. Meet Kevin Pederson – Founder(far right) and his wife, and Lisa Bajkov – Kamloops Operator (second from the left) with her husband at the grand opening.
