Coolio’s is ready to chill off the summer heat

If ever there was a business happy to see the end of the soggy month of June, it is Coolio’s

If ever there was a business happy to see the end of the soggy month of June, it is Coolio’s.

The hot weather during July comes as welcome news for the newly opened mobile ice cream vendor.

Coolio’s fleet includes a novelty ice cream truck and a pair of original Dickie Dee carts from the 1980s.

The carts cover the Vernon area, while the truck handles Ellison Provincial Park.

The Vernon-based company also does birthday parties, weddings and corporate functions. They also made an appearance at the recent Funtastic Slo-Pitch Tournament.

“When I was a kid, you would hear the ice cream truck and lose your mind,” said Dawna Jodoin, who owns the company with husband Micheal Jodoin.

“We haven’t heard that for such a long time, and most children never have.

“The excitement in their faces is awesome; my daughter comes with me sometimes when I go and thinks this is the greatest job in the world.”
