Durham’s Favorite Handmade Ice Cream

Now Hiring Scoopers!

Apply now!

We’re seeking friendly ice cream enthusiasts to serve up our treats in Downtown Durham. Mostly temporary (through September or October), but longer-term positions may be available. Experience is nice, but enthusiasm is essential! We need Scoopers who have some substantial evening/weekend availability and expect to be in town for most of the summer! More info at the application.

It’s 2023 and we’re still scooping 6 days a week across from CCB Plaza downtown. You can also pre-order ice cream cakes on our site, or find select flavors in pints at The Durham Coop Market, Bulldega, and Melina’s Fresh Pasta.

We make the best ice cream around, with the best ingredients. Our flavors are inspired by the seasons, our favorite well-worn cookbooks, and our childhood ice cream memories.
