About SLO Mama Sweets VINTAGE ICE CREAM TRUCK CATERING SERVICES
After running my own apparel manufacturing company, then spending many years baking wedding cakes and desserts, I was ready to reveal a different side of my creativity. It was my desire to pursue a career on the Central Coast in which I could teach a strong work ethic to my children, instill the concept of “giving” and at the same time, incorporate some fun! Post inspiration, it took several years of dreaming, planning and building until our “baby” was born~ a fully restored 1954 vintage ice cream truck.
The magical experience of hearing the ice cream truck coming and the thoughts of the delightful contents which it holds are enchanting memories for many of us. Whether your event is elegant, casual, corporate or rustic chic, it would be our pleasure to provide you and your guests a sweet taste of the past, serving you delicious ice creams in our authentic uniforms of the era as you listen to the glorious sounds of 1940’s big bands and early 1950’s music. With the lovely jingling of our brass bells, we hope you will be transported to a dreamy time gone by as you enjoy our tasty frozen treats.

It’s our goal to provide all of our customers with a unique and delightful experience with wonderful lasting memories! We have an hourly truck rental fee which includes cheerful 1950’s uniformed servers, transcendent sounds of the era, and a customized chalkboard menu with your delicious items. Tailor your guests choices from all-time favorite traditional ice creams to amazing handmade local/artisan ice cream treats from Doc Burnsteins, Negranti Creamery, Leo Leo Gelato and of course our very own amazing “Mama’s Pops”! (prices vary).
A $200 non-refundable deposit and a signed contract is required to secure your event date. This will be applied to truck rental time and/or ice creams purchased. Additional ice creams ordered at the event will be charged at the close of our time together as well as any additional truck rental time requested. Payment for these will be expected at that time. * Travel charges will apply outside San Luis Obispo.

We would be remiss not to mention those who have guided, mentored, rescued and helped us along our way.
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our mentor, friend and “godfather” of the ice cream truck business, Joe Marazzo of Delicious Ice Cream in NJ. Thanks Joe for all the generosity and guidance!
