A Pennsylvania Girl Chases Her Dreams of Opening an Ice Cream Shop. Now I’m Hungry!

Even from an early age, Trish Motter knew what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Growing up, she spent a lot of time around her parent’s businesses (Biglerville laundromat and car wash) and learning everything she could from her parents on running a successful business.

You’re probably familiar with the following quote “if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”. With that in mind, she wanted to chase her own dream of building a successful business and doing what she loves.

Specifically, she wanted to open her very own ice cream shop, so in 2014, she took the first step and dropped everything to go after her dream of opening an ice cream parlor

Because she was often called “half pint” by her friends and family, Motter decided to name it Half Pint Creamery which was very appropriate.

Take a look at how Motter made a dream a reality and view just some of the wonderful ice cream flavors she created. If the following ice cream flavors don’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will!
