Sub Zero at the 2013 Emmy Awards

A few weeks ago, the Sub Zero Corporate office sponsored another celebrity gifting suite in Los Angeles, CA right before the Emmy Awards on September 22. A variety of celebrities from television, film and music attended the Bellafortuna gifting suite to prepare for the Emmy’s.

Sub Zero corporate employees enjoyed the celebrity scene as they interacted with celebrities such as Kyle Massey (Disney Channel), Alexis Bellino (Real Housewives of Orange County), Christina Milian (Artist), Soulja Boy, Ana Trebunskaya (Dancing With the Stars), Dot Marie Jones (Glee), RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad), Caitlin O’Connor (Sons of Anarchy) and many more. Each celebrity that visited the Sub Zero tent enjoyed making ice cream and agreed that it was delicious!

“This is just insane,” said Alexis Bellino from Desperate Housewives of Orange County. “The ice cream is so delicious … Sub Zero knows what’s up,” said Kyle Massey from Disney Channel’s That’s So Raven and Dancing With the Stars.

Allergies Shouldn’t Stop You!

In the food business, we encounter people with all sorts of food allergies that limit their options. Though it could be annoying to to have food allergies, they are not to be taken lightly. Some allergies are so severe that being in the same room with a product could trigger a horrible reaction.

Smoke 1At Sub Zero Ice Cream & Yogurt, we definitely don’t take allergies lightly. One of the coolest things about our products is that each one is made in front of you, exactly how you like it. That means you literally watch every step and monitor every ingredient that goes into the process. You see us pour fresh cream base into a bowl with no additives or unseen chemicals. You have the control, so you know exactly how it enters your body.

Something else that is unique about our product is that we allow customers to bring in their own products and we will freeze them into ice cream*. If you have to have a certain kind of milk, flavor or candy, we are happy to accommodate you. That way you get a frozen treat that you know is healthy and safe for you to eat. IMG_8858

With our advanced technology we can cater to gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, sugar-free and other allergy needs. Stop fearing your allergies and come try our allergy-friendly, delicious, customizable ice cream that is made right in front of your eyes!

*Certain locations, such as the Indiana store, have state regulations that prohibit the freezing of customer products. Please call your local Sub Zero store to discuss freezing regulations on personal products before coming to the store.

Back to School!

Here at Sub Zero, back to school time is like Christmas! Instead of presents and candy canes, we get to spread the magic of science to students everywhere in the form of liquid nitrogen ice cream. And to us, that is better than Christmas.


Our cryogenic process sets us apart as a scientific experience in the world of frozen dessert and with that comes a myriad of unique opportunities. Our CEO, Jerry Hancock, believes that business is more than sales and revenue. The impact you have on the community is remembered long after the delicious concoction is gobbled up! With Sub Zero, our favorite unique opportunity is school presentations. We have developed an educational and engaging scientific presentation that teaches kids to love science and what you can make with science. We hope our legend will be furthering scientific education in the rising generation and not just the quality of our ice cream.


So here’s how it works. One of Sub Zero’s “scientists” enters the classroom wearing a labcoat while dragging a giant tank full of liquid nitrogen! After a quick set up, the “scientist” explains the chemical properties of the atmosphere among other things and then backs up the facts with real life science experiments. Once the short scientific lesson is complete, each student experiences science in action as liquid cream is transformed into a solid dessert for their enjoyment.

Students love the presentation and get to learn in an engaging, rewarding way, but don’t take our word for it!

“Sub Zero’s presentation is fun and engaging for students,” said Shannon Arroyo, third grade teacher at Westside Elementary School. “It teaches scientific principles in a hands-on and kid-friendly way. Science is always more exciting with an edible ending.”

“We thought Sub Zero was great,” said Annette Warnich, Head of Arches Academy. “It was even better than we expected–more full of science instruction, cooler demonstrations, and even our choice of flavors for ice cream. We loved everything!”

IMG_3402Did we mention that we also reward the kids if they participate in our reading program, too? All they have to do is read 20 minutes for 20 days with adult supervision and they get a FREE ice cream!

“The students LOVED the science and the ice cream,” said Eloise Carlston, fifth grade teacher at Arcadia Elementary School. “I think they were as amazed as I was with the speed that you produced three flavors of ice cream for everyone. They are excited to read 20 minutes for 20 days and get another taste of the ice cream!”

With Sub Zero Ice Cream educational presentations, students everywhere can learn to harness science in educationally delicious ways. To learn more about school presentations visit our website at and contact the corporate office with any questions.

Sub Zero Tries Out the Red Carpet

This last month, Sub Zero had the opportunity to share the magic of premium, liquid nitrogen ice cream with celebrities at several events and we had a fantastic time! In the same weekend, we made ice cream at a gifting suite for the 2013 Teen Choice Awards in Hollywood and on the green at Steve Harvey’s celebrity golfing tournament in Las Vegas. We learned a lot about promoting and met some incredible people in the process.

Jean-Luc Bilodeau 1- smallerAt the Teen Choice Awards it was awesome to amaze the celebrities with our fast-freezing process. Comments like “that’s amazing” and “wow!” were frequent as our Sub Zero employees made ice cream in a matter of seconds. The awestruck faces that accompanied those comments were equally heart-warming. We hope that we made the same lasting impression on each of them as they did for us.

At the Steve Harvey golf tournament, Founders Jerry and Naomi Hancock served Sub Zero Ice Cream to celebrities as they golfed through the 15th hole of the green. Celebrities got to take a small break from golfing to grab a frozen treat and take a picture with the Sub Zero banner and signature fog.

Overall our experiences were great and Sub Zero was in the spot light for a few moments! Below is a compilation of our Teen Choice Awards experience. We hope you recognize some of the celebrities in attendance.

Upcoming event: MAKING ice cream with celebrities at the 2013 Emmy’s gifting suite on September 16th! Stay tuned for awesome footage to come from that! :)
