NICE TO MEET YOU.
My name is Caitlin Clare, the founder of Clare’s Creamery.
I am an ice cream enthusiast, super scooper and general dessert lover but most importantly, I am an entrepreneur. I have had a life-long dream of opening a neighborhood ice cream shop and am beyond excited to say that dream has recently become a reality.
As a young adult, I had the opportunity to work at an ice cream shop and it truly set the foundation for my entrepreneurial spirit and love of ice cream. After graduating from college, I spent ten years in Sales, Digital Marketing and Ecommerce developing my professional skills and most of my nights and weekends were dedicated to taste-testing ice cream.
Fast forward to January 2020. I enrolled in Ice Cream 101 at Penn State University, bought an ice cream bike and officially launched Clare's Creamery. It's been a pretty crazy year (major understatement) but I am so thankful to be opening the shop & look forward to celebrating together soon.
Clare is a family name shared by my Grandmother (Regina Clare), myself (Caitlin Clare) and my daughter (Helen Clare).
When thinking of a name for the shop, it seemed appropriate to name after family since most of my fondest memories involve family and ice cream. And I might be slightly biased, but I think it has a nice "ring" to it.
