The Cones Truck
The ONLY truck of its kind
in all of North Carolina!
The Cones truck is spectacular, inside and out!
Cones started life as a Chevy Express van. Shipped to England, its cargo area was removed, then replaced with a specially molded compartment built specifically to do one thing--equip a soft serve ice cream truck. The Italian-made soft-serve machine itself, originally designed to produce gourmet gelato, is top-of-the-line, adapted specifically to handle the high-volume, mobile needs of a truck of this quality.
The ice cream equipment runs off the truck's engine rather than a heavy, noisy generator. This allows us to remain all day at an event, quietly idling away, serving treat after delicious treat, without the need for electricity or additional equipment. This truck design by David Cummins and Whitby Morrison has been the favored format in Europe for more than 40 years, but only became available in the United States in 1999. And yet, they have already become known as 'the Cadillac of soft-serve trucks.'
Of course, having such a unique truck dictated a menu of the same caliber. We're not your average ice cream truck...our creative menu will make your mouth water!
Our Cones soft-serve truck is a founding member of Charlotte's SouthEnd Food Truck Rally, winner of Charlotte Magazine's 2013 BOB Award for Best Regular Foodie Event. Find us almost every Friday night, 5-9pm, at the Food Truck Lot at the corner of Park and Camden Roads. Follow Food Truck Friday on Twitter at @FTFCharlotte, and on Facebook at Food Truck Friday.
soft-serve truck is
North Carolina's only
ice cream truck!
When you serve a premium soft-serve, you have to honor it with some fantastic sundaes.
Our regular menu features ice cream toppers such as homemade lemon curd, gourmet balsamic vinegars, chocolate-covered coffee beans, pink Himalayan sea salt, pomegranate molasses served with pistachios, and more.
Many days we feature specialty items including homemade baked goods a la mode. New sundae creations are frequently debuted.
With a menu this extensive and eclectic, not everything
may be available at all times, but...if we don't have your favorite on the day you visit, it's a great time to try something new!
