Little Man Ice Cream Offers New Off-site Options
Sweet spot’s famous flavors now available at Denver metro-area restaurants and special events
DENVER, CO – Little Man Ice Cream has launched a wholesale business and “express bike” to make it easier for fans to satisfy their cravings for the shop’s famous flavors. Little Man staples, such as its popular Mexican Chocolate ice cream, are now available at more than a dozen Denver metro-area restaurants, including Charlie Palmer’s District Tavern, Il Vicino and Margs Taco Bistro.
The restaurants offer a daily selection of local flavors, handcrafted in small batches in the same commissary where Little Man makes ice cream for its Highland shop.
Little Man has also added an “express bike” to provide ice cream at special events, such as festivals and concerts, as well as private gatherings, including birthday parties and weddings. When not serving special events, the express bike, which offers two rotating flavors, is parked on site and helps alleviate long lines during busy periods. The concept has proven so popular, that Little Man plans to have four express bikes by next summer.
“The express bike and wholesale business provide us with new ways to expand our reach, while maintaining our landmark location. The express bike in particular, has helped Little Man capture customers that were not planning on visiting our shop. Customers that are walking by are more willing to purchase a quick treat from the express bike,” said Little Man Manager Loren Martinez.
Little Man also offers pre-packed pints and ice cream sandwiches for customers who want their icy treats to go.
Thanks to increased volume and the new wholesale business, Little Man has made roughly 30 percent more ice cream this summer, compared to last year.
Opened in 2008, Little Man is housed in a 28-foot steel replica of an old-fashioned milk can at 2620 16th Street. The community-focused shop hosts a series of events every summer, ranging from musical performances to weekend pancake breakfasts. Little Man also believes in giving back and helps fight hunger through its “Scoop for Scoop” program. For every scoop of ice cream Little Man sells, one scoop of rice is donated to villages in Ethiopia and Myanmar. Since 2008, the shop has donated more than 400,000 scoops.
