About ICE Cream Emergency

Family Owned

We are a family owned business headquartered in Oxford, CT. We have over 12 years
of experience in the catering and event arenas and we and our franchisees look forward to servicing your events!  We also offer a selection of delicious frozen yogurt, dairy-free and vegan sorbet, no-nut flavors, and gluten free options. Don’t you just LOVE ice cream and the way it makes you feel? We do too! In fact, that’s how Ice Cream Emergency came to be. Ice cream is a social, congratulatory food and it is always associated with appreciation, pride and happiness. When we think of ice cream, a smile spreads across our faces and we bring this happiness to your event and your guests.

We can’t think of a single time when ice cream hasn’t been associated with a happy occasion. So, we created Ice Cream Emergency – a mobile, full-service ice cream parlor disguised as a whimsical rescue vehicle that comes directly to your event. We use super premium, gourmet ice cream that is to die for (please don’t take this literally, we are not a real emergency vehicle!). We also offer a selection of delicious frozen yogurt and low-fat and fat-free options. We are open almost all year. Weather is not a concern as your guests board the Ice Cream Emergency Bus and are served INSIDE. Call us NOW to book your next event. Your guests will be wowed and talking about Ice Cream Emergency for Years!

Debbie is amazing and has been the perfect touch to our school events and my husband's work events not to mention the birthday parties we've been to that she has orchestrated. I highly recommend you book Debbie for your next event.
