About Mr Whippy Cheshire
About Mr Whippy Cheshire. Here you can find all you need to know about how we started to where we are now.
It all started way back in the 1960’s with a family member of the Humphries family. Who originally worked for Cadbury’s the now well known chocolate makers. One of his friends also working there at the time decided to leave to start up his own Ice Cream Van business. He rented a van off a local Cheshire company, he managed to persuade the Humphries family member to follow suit and rent his first ever Ice Cream Van.
His first ever van was based on a 1960’s Commer painted in the Blue & White Mister Softee colours.
After working round the streets all his life, two of his children decided to go into the family business following in their fathers foot steps. Sadly the father passed away in 1999 at the young age of 61. His two sons continued to provide the streets of Cheshire and Manchester with delicious Mr Whippy Ice Cream for the many years to follow.

Here & Now
Still to this very day in 2018. The two sons have continued to follow in their fathers footsteps. Carrying on serving Ice Cream on the same street and round he once did. Now though in 2018 the sons of the two brothers have started to take the reigns and follow in their Grandfathers footsteps by taking on their Grandfathers Ice Cream round. Since then as the street trade started fizzle away and just about provide enough income for the family to continue, they had to stay with the 21st century and modernise.
