By | Blog, Ask The Experts, EBE News

If you’re looking to bring the taste of Philly into your wedding reception, consider having an ice cream bar catered by one of the top ice cream spots. There are some fantastic options to choose from when it comes to the local ice cream company to cater your wedding. From new and trendy to historical old Philadelphia, we’ve selected the ice cream companies that we think you would love to be a part of your event.

Bassetts Ice Cream

A staple of Philadelphia, Bassetts has been in business since 1861 providing creamy, sweet treats to the Philadelphia area. Bassetts moved to the Reading Terminal Market in 1892 when it opened and has been there ever since. With over 40 flavors to choose from such as peanut butter swirl, classic vanilla, and chocolate, every guest will find something they like from your ice cream bar. Bassetts brings everything from scoops to servers and all you have to bring is your guests!

 

Weckerly’s Ice Cream

Opened in 2012, Weckerly’s Ice Cream began in West Philadelphia at the Green Line Cafe by pastry chef Jen Satinsky. Made in small batches from locally sourced ingredients and organic cream brought in from Chester County, each ice cream flavor is crafted to make the ingredients shine. Flavors range from classic vanilla to more wild seasonal options. Catering options vary depending on the needs of the event – from full service scooping to plated and delivered desserts, Weckerly’s is happy to meet the needs of their clients.

 

The Franklin Fountain

Although soda fountains seem to be a thing of the past, they are making a come back! The Franklin Fountain offers that old school soda fountain feel to the Philadelphia area. Founded in 2004, The Franklin Fountain “aims to serve an experience steeped in ideals, drizzled with drollery, and sprinkled with the forgotten flavors of the American past.” Their menu is available for delivery from classic sundaes, egg creams, and phosphates, to delicious floats and sodas. The nostalgic flavors include caramel banana, hydrox cookie (think Oreos!), strawberry, peach and peanut butter.
