ice cream school

Ice Cream School was started in the summer of 2020 following the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Founder and instructor, Chad Hartley, saw the need for individuals who were looking to start their own frozen dessert business, but had no where to turn to for immediate knowledge and resources.

Ice Cream School is intended to help people who have dreams of owning their own ice cream shop get started and be successful. We are also here for those people looking to further their education and gain valuable knowledge in business operations in order to be even more successful in their business.

At Ice Cream School not only will you learn how to make ice cream, but just as importantly, we will teach you how to actually be successful financially in the ice cream business.
