About Ice Cream Emergency
ICE CREAM EMERGENCY is a uniquely themed, mobile ice cream catering business. It’s a full service ice cream parlor on wheels, housed inside a SHUTTLE BUS. The guests go INSIDE the fully-appointed, climate-controlled BUS to be served delicious, hand-dipped, gourmet ice cream and then help themselves to the delectable toppings bar. It’s unique. It’s interactive. It’s mobile. Customers love it. ICE CREAM EMERGENCY is a unique ice cream catering food truck…with so many added bonuses. Here’s the difference: in addition to the delicious ice cream and the fact that guests are served INSIDE the awesome ICE Bus; a major component of our success lies in the way our customers feel when they board the ICE Bus.

First Personality/Workstyle: Connector - People in this group are warm, supportive, and great at cultivating relationships. They are the most people-oriented of the four styles. With their relaxed disposition, people find them approachable and understanding. They have developed strong networks of people who are willing to be mutually supportive and reliable. They are team players and somewhat risk-averse. They are good planners, persistent workers, and good with follow-through. They are problem-solvers and consensus-makers.
Second Personality/Workstyle: Director - People in this group are driven by two things: the need to control and the need to achieve. They are goal-oriented and most comfortable when in charge of people and situations. They accept challenges, take authority, and plunge headfirst into solving problems. Others naturally respect their leadership and decisions and come to them for advice. They are fast-paced, task-oriented, and work quickly and effectively by themselves, which might mean they can become annoyed with delays or incompetence.
