30 Years of Ice Cream Van Hire

Who We Are

Ice cream is in our blood. The Morreale family has been working in the ice cream business since the sixties and Austin remembers helping his dad at his factory and on his ice cream route. In 1986, he established his own business and Austin’s Ices was born. Since then, our iconic vans have become a well-known sight in Manchester’s streets.
Our name is synonymous with exceptional service, family values and fun events. We offer:

  • 30 years of experience and a name that can be trusted
  • Packages that are tailored to your requirements
  • A fleet of top-of-the-range, pristine vans that have been certified by the council
  • Branding options including posters, decorations and custom wafers
  • Friendly and courteous staff who are well-trained and hold health, safety and hygiene certificates
  • All your childhood favourites, including Mr Whippy, lollies, tubs and slushes
  • The option to serve hot dogs and other snacks
