Combining Two Loves
Founder, Brian Brooker creates a sweet revolution and the Brooker's Founding Flavors Story
The Brooker's Founding Flavors Story owes its creation to Brian Brooker who is pursuing his longtime dream of starting a homemade ice cream business. The inspiration for Brooker’s Founding Flavors Ice Cream began over 20 years ago when during the summer after his high school graduation, Brian thru-hiked a lengthy, multi-state section of the Appalachian Trail stopping off in different trail towns each week to eat a pint of locally made ice cream. Later, after graduating from BYU, Brian and his wife Jamie spent a summer semester in Europe, including Italy and 11 other countries, as part of his Juris Doctor/MBA joint degree program, where they fell in love with real Italian gelato. The traditional gelato and other desserts that Brian experienced in Europe further inspired the creation of his own quality treats. The ice cream business spark, that was lit for Brian while distance hiking through the Northeastern woods of the United States and fanned into a flame by a summer enjoying European confections, eventually led him to successfully complete six of the best ice cream production and ice cream business courses available.
Brian’s other love, Early American history, began during his childhood. Brian is a Virginian. Having grown up in the backyard of the Founding Fathers, regularly visiting their homes, battlefields and other places where they made world history, Brian’s boyhood was steeped in an appreciation for America’s Founding Fathers and America’s Founding Principles. This early exposure sparked a life long love and interest in America’s founding history for Brian. Later in life, after returning from a deployment to Iraq, he spent five years of his term of military service stationed as an Army Captain on the Virginia Peninsula, just down the road from the site of the Jamestown settlement and Colonial Williamsburg where Brian further developed a unique connection to and love for America’s Founding.
Brian’s vision is for the Brooker's Founding Flavors Story to combine his love of America’s Founding with his love of homemade, quality ice cream to create a revolutionary, super premium ice cream that is branded and themed with American liberty. Brooker’s Founding Flavors Ice Cream has an American Founding theme that communicates the spirit and character of Revolutionary America and the Founding Fathers. Our boldly flavored, chunky, swirly ice cream and other homemade treats embody the passion of the American Revolution.
Brooker’s Founding Flavors Ice Cream sells the best quality products of their kind and provides the best customer service. All themed with an American Founding branding that customers can believe in.
