From Global News - August 11, 2017

Almost every single summer morning, Peter Pickrell starts his mornings preparing his mobile ice-cream truck for the day ahead.

This business first started back in 1983, when we opened up an ice-cream shop in the Pointe-Claire village, he said. Then in 2003, there was a fire in a building next door. The building was impossible to rebuild, so we decided to take the ice cream on the road.

Pickrells mobile ice cream hit the road as a mobile ice-cream supplier about 14 years ago.

But they didnt stray too far away from the West Island.

Pickrell is also one of the owners of Pointe-Claires Westmount Florist.

Theyre both great businesses, he said. It was perfect having a flower shop next to an ice-cream shop. It was absolutely incredible. It was a dream come true.

From June to October, rain or shine, the truck caters corporate and public events.
