Lopez Island Creamery was started over 20 years ago on the little island of Lopez found in Washington’s San Juan Islands. The company started off very small producing gourmet ice cream in a kitchen that was about the size of a bedroom. Flavors were developed and given to locals on the island in trade for their feedback. Once the flavors were perfected, Lopez Island Creamery ice cream started showing up in local stores, restaurants, and events in and around the San Juan Islands.
As our reputation for making delicious, high quality ice cream grew, so did our business. By 2008, distribution had expanded throughout the San Juan Islands and quickly became known as some of the best ice cream in Seattle. In 2010, Lopez Island Creamery had grown so much that the company finally had to move off of Lopez Island and into Anacortes. This move was made to not only better serve customers but to also lessen the company’s carbon footprint by cutting down on the number of ferry trips transporting ingredients and finished product. Throughout our growth we have continued to produce a super-premium ice cream using the same small batch method and high quality ingredients that we did when the business first opened. A commitment to producing a locally sourced, all natural, handmade ice cream is still our highest priority.
Washington’s Lopez Island is locally famous for its longstanding custom of waving at every motorist, bicyclist, and pedestrian encountered on Lopez Island, coining the phrase “the friendly island.” Lopez Island Creamery is inspired by the rich quality of life that is experienced on the Island and although we are no longer producing ice cream there, we still keep that same mentality from where it all began.
