Sir Whippy was founded by Andy Newland who has worked for over 10 years in the ice cream industry. Following the retirement of the ‘Tony Fresko’ business which Andy had managed for the last 5 years it seemed only natural to continue running a fleet of ice cream vans under the new name Sir Whippy.
Andy has a good understanding of the industry with a passion to push forward with innovation and ideas.
Since running Sir Whippy, Andy has invested a considerable amount of time and money into the sustainability of the ice cream trade. Ice Cream Vans are becoming banned in parts of the country due to diesel emissions and Andy is keen to lead the way with newer greener vans.
To date Sir Whippy have invested in electric powered machinery for their ice cream vans, allowing trading from electrical hook up when available. We are also investing in battery technology to enable us to trade in remote locations without any emissions.
It is safe to say that Sir Whippy are turning ice cream vans into ‘Green Mean Powered Machines!’
Sir Whippy’s vision is to continue selling ice cream from their distinctive vans in the local area, enabling generations to come to enjoy soft ice cream at affordable prices. We are committed to ensure we do this in the most environmentally friendly way. By 2025 hopefully all our ice cream vans will be carbon neutral and may even be powered by the sun!
