OUR history

Quintin’s Ice Cream was founded in late 1998 by Quintin Quinlivan, a former Pastry Chef, to produce Ice Cream and Sorbet for local restaurants and hotels. He first rented a small space in the closed Gold Seal Dairy in Mid-City and later moved his production to his own property in the Irish Chanel in early 2002. During that time, he has formed relationships with local chefs to produce unique flavors of ice cream and sorbet, and he continues to do that for upcoming local chefs. We at Quintin’s Ice cream have always enjoyed coming up with new and unique flavor for our customers.
