An Ice Cream Membership That Tastes and Feels Good

We know what you’re probably thinking—another membership? You’re most likely part of a few membership and loyalty programs already. There are over 3 billion loyalty memberships in the United States, and 72% of American adults are members of at least one! Chances are you even have a membership on auto pay that you don’t use anymore but still pay for.  

But what if we told you there was a membership that feels good and tastes good too? That’s right, there’s an ice cream membership that supports the community and makes it super easy for you to get your regular ice cream fix! 

Have you ever met someone who doesn’t eat ice cream? Neither have we! Something about a classic scoop of ice cream on a hot summer day makes everything better. Not only does Howdy Homemade Ice Cream satisfy your sweet tooth, but we also give back to the community with every scoop. If you’re looking to support local nonprofit organizations in North Carolina, why not start with something sweet?  

Satisfy Your Cravings While Helping the IDD Community 

We pride ourselves on serving ice cream that puts a smile on everyone’s face at Howdy Homemade Ice Cream shop! Choose from a variety of flavors that the whole family can enjoy. Our ice cream is made with high-quality ingredients and made fresh daily.  

Our customers say ours is the best ice cream in Raleigh, North Carolina, but what really sets us apart is our employees—they’re the true heart and soul of our inclusive business. As a North Carolina nonprofit, we’re the first entirely non-profit location of Howdy’s, aiming to give back all proceeds to the IDD community. We knew we had the opportunity to make a difference, so that’s exactly what we did! 

At our Howdy Homemade Ice Cream shop in The Triangle area, we hire employees with intellectual or developmental disabilities and challenge other businesses to be more inclusive with their operations too. Our goal is to ensure every employee and every customer feels comfortable and welcomed from the moment they walk through the door. Our location offers customers and employees many accommodations including special back-end processes and an adult changing station. 

Though we knew we were making an impact with the location, we wanted to do even more. That’s why we created our unique ice cream membership program to help make our dream to give back to the IDD community, a reality.  

Give Back to the Community with an Ice Cream Membership 

We believe everyone has the power to reach their full potential. We framed our business model to help those who otherwise might not have the opportunity to reach theirs. We focus on training and mentoring individuals of all abilities with the confidence and skills to reach their goals.  If we can be the model of what it takes to make a difference in the IDD community, it will have a ripple effect for other businesses to follow suit. 

So, what can you do to help us achieve our mission? Join our ice cream membership program!
