If you have ever been to Jay’s Ice Cream & Sunshine’s Gelato, you know why it is one of downtown Milton’s most cherished businesses. Their friendly staff, delicious flavours and inviting environment provides an experience everyone will enjoy.
Jay’s Ice Cream and Sunshine’s Gelato boasts over 65 must-try flavours. They offer many healthy-choice options and products that are sugar, milk, nut and gluten free. Jay’s also offers catering services for large events including weddings and corporate events. The ice cream and gelato store is run by Dave and Cathy Saumier, who share an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for great customer service.
Jay’s Ice Cream & Sunshine’s Gelato is located at 146 Main Street East in Downtown Milton. It was opened in 1997 by Jason Vanderveen as Jay’s Ice Cream. In 2010, Dave and Cathy bought the business. Well-versed in the business of frozen treats, Dave and Cathy were operating a store across the street called Sunshine’s Gelato for the last seven years. They consolidated the two businesses and began operating as Jay’s Ice Cream & Sunshine’s Gelato in 2011. This year marks the 20th anniversary for the business!
For Dave and Cathy, one of the best parts about having a business in Downtown Milton is participating in events such as the Downtown Milton Street Festival, the Downtown Milton Easter Egg Hunt and more. This past year, Jay’s Ice Cream & Sunshine’s Gelato participated in the Milton Family Fun Run and supported the World War I exhibit and display at the Royal Canadian Legion, Milton. In addition, they donate annually to local youth sports teams.
Congratulations Jay’s Ice Cream & Sunshine’s Gelato for winning the top prize in the 2017 Downtown Milton Businesses People’s Choice Award! This award, run as part of the Downtown Milton Easter Egg Hunt and hosted by the Downtown Milton BIA, gave event participants a chance to vote for their favourite Downtown Milton business.
