Katie’s Ice Cream is proud to announce new ownership. Katie Kimball has assumed ownership of the family business. The succession makes Katie the second-generation owner of the locally owned and operated Hyannis ice cream shop.
For over 15 summers, Katie’s Ice Cream has been scooping up, small batch, and homemade ice cream on Main Street, Hyannis. The family business was established by Julie Kimball as she fulfilled a dream she had had since serving ice cream as a teenager. With her entrepreneurial spirit, hard work and dedication, Julie’s ownership grew Katie’s Ice Cream and allowed it to evolve into the iconic business it is today.
Julie is now stepping down from the day-to-day operations and passing control to her daughter, Katie Kimball. Katie is excited to make her own entrepreneurial mark on the family business. She has a strong understanding of the ice cream business and food industry. At a young age she began working, at Katie’s Ice Cream and over that time worked in many roles, and departments. After graduating from Sturgis Charter School, Katie obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Green Mountain College. Since then, she has been working full-time in the food industry including at the family company. Katie’s ice cream is where she has developed a true passion for business, ice cream and the amazing people that visit Katie’s Ice Cream every year.
“I look forward to continuing the family business, and continuing to build on the business my mother established”, says Katie. “We are a truly Cape Cod company, I believe in keeping the company local and supporting the community. We are passionate about scooping up fresh, fantastic, ice cream and giving people the best, in-the-moment customer service. It’s what gets me out of bed and the morning and keeps me up late at night. My goal is to bring people together, help them connect and make them feel good- that is what this business is all about. I am excited about what the future holds at Katie’s.”
