With a background in fine dining, Buck moved from Vermont to Raleigh, North Carolina, and was looking for an opportunity. One fine day to treat his kids, he made some ice cream from locally-sourced hormone-free milk and fresh fruits, and without any additives or food color. Watching the pure joy it bought to his kids, he encountered an ‘Aha!’ moment and decided to take this further. Shortly, Lumpy’s Ice Cream was formed, production moved to a shed behind of his house, and Buck remained the company’s only employee for several more months serving only at concerts and fairs.
Word about Lumpy’s Ice Cream spread and soon reached NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Through their Goodness Grows In NC program, the business got immense support and soon expanded its production, employees, and reach.

Maple View Farm's grass-fed cows graze on pesticide-free Orange County pastures. Maple View has long been known as the premier ice cream maker in the Triangle region and has also received national recognition as one of the best in the country.
Treat also strives to work with other local, regional, and statewide favorites as well, including Raleigh’s own Videri Chocolate Factory, Crank Arm Brewing and Benelux Coffee, Mooresville's Uncle Scott's Root Beer, and what is arguably the official state soft drink, Cheerwine from Salisbury.
Each and every store is owned by real people who are truly passionate about ice cream. And they all make their fresh ice creams, cakes, pies, and even waffle cones right inside their stores.
Bruster’s makes more than 140 recipes of out-of-this-world fresh ice cream and serves it up in crispy waffle cones and waffle bowls everyday.

Inspired by the slower pace and southern style, he and his wife moved to North Carolina in 2007, where they raise their four children; two boys and two girls. Life is full of laughter, fun, and hard work. They like to celebrate the "little moments" and could not find a family friendly sit down environment to share the simple treasures of ice cream and desserts.
This led to the decision of opening up a local ice cream shop serving homemade ice cream in Raleigh, NC. They desired a place where family, friends, and youth could come and celebrate life! Finding this location on Capital Boulevard seemed to be a perfect match with Little Caesars Pizza right next door. The Grand Opening date was 9/12/2014. They encourage you to bring your sports team, youth group, book club, friends, and family. Grab some pizza if you desire, have some dessert, and let the "good times roll!"
