What's Happening with Us?

We are officially entering into our second season with our new trailer.  We've been actively putting together our schedule for this upcoming season and dates are filling in quickly!  We're excited to be keeping our successful events from prior years, yet adding some new events and opportunities for 2016.  We'll be setting up at Generations Park each Tuesday for the Farmer's Market, and new for this year, we'll be at Generations Park for their Family Movie Nights (twice a month) selling our ice cream as well.  As our special events schedule becomes more complete, we'll be announcing the dates and times that we'll be set up at Mt. Crawford Creamery during the weekday evenings throughout the summer.  Keep checking back for further updates!

For more information about our services, or to inquire about upcoming events, please feel free to contact us.  Below are a few other sites that we're associated with.  


Our facebook page www.facebook.com/smileysicecream has great reviews and testimonials from prior customers as well as events that we are supplying ice cream for.

 

We are now on The knot.com as well as weddingwire.com as a local ice cream vendor for Virginia and nearby weddings!

                                  Our History

Smiley's Ice Cream began in 2001 to bring the freshest ice cream you can eat, made at your location, to your next event.   We started out at our local Farmer's Market, but due to requests from customers and businesses to bring ice cream to their events, we became too busy to continue the market on a regular basis.  We currently travel throughout Virginia and surrounding areas to bring our freshly made ice cream to weddings, businesses, street festivals, and private events. 

                       Our Traditional Process

Traditional ice cream, or "porch ice cream" as we like to refer to it, is at the heart of what we do. It's the ice cream many people grew up making on their porches at home with lots of ice and salt and their own homemade recipes.  Ice cream that focusses on quality ingredients and flavor, and is not as concerned with how much overrun (air) is in the ice cream.  After all, air has no flavor the last time I checked.  

We began with the simple idea that we would make our ice cream the same way I grew up making it as a kid on my parent's back porch.  So we did, putting flavor and quality ingredients at the forefront, and it became a popular hit that developed into a mobile business.  We could make the flavors of ice cream that customers wanted, the old fashioned way, with original wooden bucket ice cream freezers and only the freshest ingredients right at their event in a 12' enclosed trailer that's regulated and inspected by the health department.  

In the winter of 2015, we added a new 20' trailer to our business that allows us to make our great recipes in commercial modern batch freezers.  This allows us to use the same great recipes that our customers have come to love, make any quantity of ice cream that our customers want, make bulk quantities of ice cream at an affordable cost, and allows us to operate our business in a more environmentally friendly way as the new batch freezers don't create the salt water waste that is created in making the ice cream the traditional way.

Our newest trailer allows us to bring the services of an ice cream shop right to the customers location.  It was designed with the customer in mind, as we have learned a lot since 2001 about what customers want.  We can serve from the trailer, or lay down the back of the trailer to bring the equipment into the event that we're serving at.  We can serve 800 people down to 50 people from the same trailer.  It's this flexibility, and love of making great quality ice cream, that backs our motto of "Bringing happiness to you one scoop at a time!"

Best,

Derek Smiley
