Chilling with SBD
Today is National Ice Cream Day – the perfect day to share the story of Chill Bros, and how we helped them build their brand with custom umbrellas.
The story begins with three Chillura Brothers and a Chillura Sister (between the ages of four and twelve) and their plans to open a much-needed Scoop Shop for their neighborhood in Tampa. They would serve the best homemade ice cream in town, and the whole neighborhood could walk there every night after dinner. It was a childhood dream until about twelve years later, when Max (the middle Chill Bro), traveled to Bologna Italy, to learn the art of ice cream making. Upon his return, they developed a truly all-natural, American style ice cream made from absolute scratch, with passion, care and the best ingredients they could get their hands on. They renovated a historic building in Ybor City where they could both make and sell their ice cream, built out a full-scale ice cream kitchen, and began serving really good homemade ice cream.
As the business grew, The Chilluras had a vision for extending their branding to the outdoor areas of their scoop shops, and we were more than happy to bring their vision to life, with Montecito aluminum umbrellas in Malibu Blue, with a Cabana Red Stripe Lining.
Chill Bros scoop shops are popping up all over Florida, where folks can chill under our umbrellas while they enjoy their cones.
And if you can’t make the trip in person, you can always catch the vibe on their Instagram page.
When all is said and done, Chill Bros is about having a good time. It’s a spot for however you want to chill, any day or night of the week. You can expect a warm welcome, a comfortable seat, a fresh playlist, the smell of homemade waffle cones, and an ever-changing line up of the best artisanal ice cream you can find. So, swing on by, grab an Ice Cream – and chill.
