With a mission of happiness and hope in every scoop, Howdy Homemade Ice Cream will be opening their shop in Cary in December! They will strive to make everyone feel welcome and valued by employing individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Another goal is to inspire other businesses to expand their special needs payroll by spreading awareness in the Triangle. The current unemployment rate of individuals with disabilities is around 80%, so they hope to reduce that and offer employment opportunities to individuals in need.

They will have many unique flavors including Dr. Pepper Chocolate Chip, Orange Dreamsicle, Cookie Nom'Ster and Choco Bananas, just to name a few. I love that they highlight individuals with autism who are thriving as business owners on the carton of their Cookie Nom'Ster flavor. What an inspiration that they are offering opportunities instead of limitations.

You can make a tax deductible donation to their mission - your dollars will help offer job training to those with disabilities, provide necessary resources for employees, and help the shop get up and running. Aside from their brick and mortar location, they will also offering catering for weddings, parties and corporate events.

They also offer opportunities for volunteering and sponsorship and are currently hiring for the following 3 positions: shop director, hero shift manager and hero. Watch for them in the local community as they hold fundraisers and pop ups where you can try their ice cream before they're officially open for business. Franchisee Philip Lin

Future Location: 370 S Walker St #123, Cary, NC 27511.
