Serve some of the world’s best ice cream. Not the clock.

A Brief History

Since 1967 Love Boat Ice Cream has been a Southwest Florida tradition. In 2014, the Borst Family purchased Love Boat and began expanding the brand.

Today, we serve some of the world’s best homemade ice cream to the world’s best and most loyal customers. After 8 years of perfecting the business model for the iconic brand across 4 stores in Southwest Florida, we are excited to share our recipe for success with new franchise owners and business partners!
