In the fall of 2008, a young couple who shared a love for each other and for food, came together to form an ice cream company in their head. “Bo & Jo’s Ice Cream” was to be inspired by their Cuban roots and make Cuban inspired ice cream flavors for our local community. Mike & Elena started to work on their dream and created a few flavors with varying degrees of success. Their first creation was a guava and cream cheese flavor, inspired by childhood snacks. It exists today as Sweet Melody’s “Bo & Jo’s Guava Cream Cheese”. Sadly, Elena became ill and passed away in the summer of 2009. A broken heart and a desire to move on led to the end of that company.
Fast forward to January of 2016:
I’m a single dad to a 3 year old daughter, Melody Jade, and working in the catering business. I started dabbling in making ice cream again and within a couple of weeks, almost as if by some magical force, I was obsessed with making ice cream. With determination, I dug my heels into becoming the best I could possibly be at my craft. I decided to only use the best ingredients at my disposal and put all my love into it. I would name the company after the great love of my life, my beautiful little girl. And that was the birth of Sweet Melody Crafted Ice Cream Co.!
Within 2 months of the company’s founding, our product caught the attention of Misha Kuryla, the founder and president of the incredibly successful Misha’s Cupcakes, who decided to sell our product at her flagship store. Also within those first 2 months of forming our company, we already had our product in 2 high profile restaurants in Coral Gables.
Direct sales and catering soon followed. Word spread and since our inception, we have maintained a 5 star rating on Yelp.
Our company has been written about numerous times in the press in our short history, and we continue to grow and improve every day to bring you an unforgettable experience. Give us a call and see for yourself!
On behalf of Daddy & Melody, we thank you for your support!!!
