Follow Your Dreams

I have always deeply admired folks who step outside of their comfort zone and follow their dreams.  This is exactly what one Kentucky family is doing, they are following their dreams and opening their very own ice creamery.  My friend Reghan and her husband have often joked about opening an ice cream shop, and finally, they decided, what's stopping them?  And the idea of Toad Hop Creamery started to become a reality.

I reached out to Reghan because I had to know more about this new business venture, and I've learned that Toad Hop is truly a labor of love.

I worked managing an ice cream store in college, and enjoyed it so much! My husband, Joshua and I always joked that we would start our own ice cream brand someday. After we had our second daughter, we started thinking more seriously about building a business and working for ourselves. At the end of last year we took the leap and started making it a reality.

How Did Toad Hop get its name?

I had to know how on Earth Reghan and Joshua came up with the name Toad Hop Creamery.
The business name, Toad Hop Creamery is inspired by a small area in West Terre Haute, Indiana, called “Toad Hop” by the locals. My family on Moms side has lived for over 6 generations. For me, “Toad Hop” evokes feelings of joy from visiting my grandparents there as a child. The name lends itself perfectly to our unique and playful brand.
Toad Hop officially opens on  February 29th and will be open from 11 AM to 8 PM every day except they will be closed on Mondays.   To stay up to date with Toad Hope Creamery you can check out their website, ToadHopCreamery.com, and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
