I have read most of the posts on Chowhound but I thought I might ask again, does anyone know how to hire an ice-cream truck? I am looking to hire for a large-ish event. Thanks!

          That's great! I found that the meltingpopsicle truck has relocated to New Orleans so I am trying a few things but this is a good option.

          How about the Coolhaus truck? Their website says they deliver. They do four different ice cream sandwiches (I think it's four) named for architects, in architectural shapes.

            If you are okay with soft serve, the All American Softy truck has been to our show many a time and is always very welcome!!
