The Dre’s Ice Cream Story By Shonte Eley

Dre’s Water Ice & Ice Cream has been in business since March 2013, starting with just a push cart and a dream.  As of March 2015, his water ice is being sold in two Brown’s Family Shoprite locations, 52nd & Jefferson and Fox Street and his ice cream is in the freezer at all 11 stores!!  With a major in Finance, Andre Andrews decided to leave his place of employment and expand his entrepreneurial goals of investing in his community, while on a mission trip with his church.  When asked what made this decision an easy one for him, he said “besides the fact that I don’t take orders well from others and I enjoy being my own boss, I saw a void in the community with providing quality water ice and good service”.

The water ice flavors include Cherry, Pineapple, Pina Colada, Mango and many more.  For his pint size ice creams he uses old family recipes with a span of flavors, both traditional and non-traditional, to differentiate himself from his competitors.  Some of which include Strawberry Shortcake, Banana Pudding, Sweet Potato Pie, made with Brown’s Southern Sweet Potato Pies, dre-sweet-potato-pieand he is working on a Peach Cobbler…yum.  There will also be specialty flavors coming out later in the year for the holidays!
