I had the pleasure of meeting Hank Sweeney, National Account Manager with Classic Mix Partners of Galloway Company at a North American Ice Cream Association convention many years ago. Hank started out with Ross Frozen Custard Machine Company of WI, which is now part of the Stoelting – Vollrath conglomerate based out of Sheboygan, WI.
Hank and I talk about the ice cream mix business as it related to the retail and industrial ice cream industry, both scoop and soft served ice creams. Hank tells how he journeyed from making custard machines to today developing Bourbon ice cream/cream treats.
Hank has some great insight on the ice cream mix industry and its development over his past 24 years with Classic Mix Partners – Galloway Company.
Sit back and enjoy my good friend Hank Sweeney and I talk Retail Ice Cream and our future. Listen as we talk about ice cream mixes, pricing, and how quality still leads the way to growth.

Late 2016, while I was with C. Nelson Mfg., Co., I had the pleasure of meeting Joey Boykin and family at the NICRA 2016 show; Joey told me his story how he was gearing up to building his first Homemade Ice Cream shop in 2017. Since then Joey has built 3 ice cream shops, built a complete ice cream truck serving ice cream shakes, cones, coffee and sweet goods. Last year, November 2022, Joey and his team bought the Rapamar Container Company and moved it to Tennessee.
Listen to Joey’s awesome story and how he is looking to stay excited about his great tasting Golly G’s Homemade Ice Creams, serving special events with his ice cream truck, and supplying other ice cream homemade shops with his easy to use disposable ice cream scoop containers.
This is were you hear how dreams are made. Joey has a great story to tell; please enjoy.
