Three Twins Ice Cream was born in San Rafael, California in 2005 when Founding Twin Neal Gottlieb set out to craft delicious, affordable, and accessible ice cream exclusively using incredible organic ingredients. Before writing the business plan for Three Twins Ice Cream, Neal Gottlieb was sharing an apartment with his twin brother Carl and Carl's wife Liz who is also a twin. The trio dubbed their apartment Three Twins, and when it came time to start the company, Neal knew just what to call it. Though it has been a pretty great ride for more than a decade, that doesn't mean there haven't been some bumps along the way. Landlords too nervous to take a chance on an ice cream entrepreneur with little money and limited experience, 90-hour weeks making and selling scoops and trying to keep a business afloat, and cold, rainy winters with dismal sales.
After a couple of years, things began to take off. Restaurants came calling, and we started selling at the Berkeley Farmers' Market and began packing pints to sell in area supermarkets. Today, our ice cream is produced in Petaluma, California and Sheboygan, Wisconsin ice cream factories and sold in all 50 states and beyond. We offer the most expansive line of organic ice cream in the country including 23 flavors of pints, quarts, single-serve cups, and ice cream novelties.
