Minnesota Nice Cream was founded by Katie Romanski in 2015. She was inspired by her memories of the perfect soft-serve ice cream on hot Midwestern days. Romanski traveled around the Midwest in a food truck sharing her sweet treats. After three years, Minnesota Ice Cream opened two brick-and-mortar locations: one in Northeast Minneapolis and one in downtown Stillwater.
