In 2011, Crank & Boom Craft Ice Cream started in the back of our family restaurant, Thai Orchid Cafe, with one flavor: Coconut. After making ice cream for about 6 months as a simple dessert option, we noticed some customers were coming in to just buy the ice cream….and they didn’t order any Thai food. From there, we began serving our super premium ice cream at festivals, weddings, parties and schools. The company grew organically from community support and we opened Crank & Boom’s first location in June 2015 in the Lexington Distillery District. Our second location on Clays Mill Road opened in June 2020 in the middle of the COVID pandemic. Crank & Boom is now sold with 20+ retail partners like Whole Foods Market and is SHIPPED NATIONWIDE via Goldbelly. We are most proud of our work with the community and our efforts to build a better world!
