For Episode 153 of Amplify Your Business, we’re joined by Ailynn and Jason from Yelo’d Ice Cream, a mom-and-pop ice cream joint that blends Asian and Philippino flavours with one of Canada’s favourite desserts: ice cream.
Yelo’d got its humble start in the home kitchen of Jason and Ailynn, where they would whip up different flavours of ice cream for their children. After one of their daughters remarked that they should open an ice cream shop, the pair got to work to make it a reality. Through the power of social media, word of this one-of-a-kind ice cream parlour made the rounds, and soon, Ailynn and Jason had crowdfunded enough capital to open Yelo’d!
