Our history dates back to the 80s, when Mr. Francisco, affectionately known as Chiquinho, opened a humble ice cream shop in the city of Frutal, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, for his son Isaias Bernardes. The city's residents and visitors fell in love for the special ice cream made by his son.
After 5 years, we opened our first branch in the city of Guaíra, in the state of São Paulo. In the following years, our business network grew by sharing the knowledge of the business with family members.
In 1996, the soft serve ice cream became a hit in Brazil, and Chiquinho Ice Cream obviously joined the to this new oportunity. We soon developed a super-secret ice cream base formula that still makes our brand stand out.
