With summer getting started, ice cream season is in full swing. You’re already having your office meals brought in, so why not have your favourite organic vanilla bean ice cream delivered too?
Ice cream delivery can either sound like the best idea ever or a melty disaster. We’ve got that process locked down and now it’s time we share our secret.
How Foodee Keeps It Cool
To start, we curate all items on our menus to travel well. This means that we work with local restaurant owners to ensure that the food available on our website will arrive to your office as fresh as they would be at the restaurant itself. Yes, even the frozen treats.
Our logistics team is equipped with thermal bags to keep the precious cargo safe from melting. On arrival, our driver will rush the precious goods to your office freezer for everyone to enjoy later.
Check out some of our favorite ice cream treats across major Foodee cities, including:
- Fior Gelato, Boulder, Colorado
- Le Pops, Boulder, Colorado
- Grinning Face, Toronto, Ontario
- Mister, Vancouver, British Columbia
- Virtuous Pie, Vancouver, BC

“We put our gelato in a blast freezer as soon as we prepare them for at least 30 minutes and again after we package them for at least 10 minutes. We then transfer the sandwiches directly to the Foodee cooler (we never leave them at room temperature).” – Marco

“I use a blast freezer! As soon as my ice cream is churned I put directly into a blast freezer that runs around -30 degrees F. This rapid form of freezing takes about 7 minutes to freeze the pints solid. This helps seal in the freshness, and contributes to giving my product the extraordinary mouth feel. This minimizes the damage and preserves food at a higher quality, I factor in the time it takes to drive around in Denver traffic so my ice cream when leaving the kitchen is extra cold.” – Jessica
The secret is out: keep the ice cream EXTRA cold!
