Established in 1969, Island Ice Cream Company started as a one truck “huckster” style business. The idea was to create an operation for the Visalli family that would pay for college tuition. Initially, Tony’s father, Anthony Visalli, Sr., had this idea and his brother, Joseph Visalli, managed the operation.
In 1972, Tony Visalli,Jr., the present owner, began to work at Island and the rest is history, as they say….Tony drove along the South Jersey shore selling Dolly Madison Ice Cream, as well as other brands, to the seasonal businesses, catering to tourists and locals.
Over 50 years, Island Ice Cream Company has developed into a full service, ice cream distribution company based in Wildwood, New Jersey. Our modern, state-of-the-art distribution center houses the largest ice cream inventory in Cape May County.
Throughout the years, Island Ice Cream Company’s commitment to quality brands and excellent service, as well as an integral understanding of the seasonal business, has been the cornerstone to our success.
