Summer’s was founded by Len and Helka Tokey in 1984. Starting in a small storefront on Cumberland Street, they decided to sell homemade ice cream - a tradition in Helka's family that began in Czechoslovakia in the late 1930's. Helka recalls stories of how her father would haul ice from the lake to their storefront in the town center of Košice to chill the cream and eventually sell as a delectable ice cream to the townspeople.
It's no surprise that they were able to translate that small-town charm to their store in Yorkville, where they have established a devoted customer base that has spanned across generations.
A FAMILY BUSINESS + LOCAL LANDMARK
“Our ice cream is made without compromise. From selecting the finest quality ingredients to working with suppliers who honour relationships over dollars, we have high expectations at every step of the process.”
- Owner and third-generation ice cream maker, Ron Tokey -
