Mission Hill Creamery, Santa Cruz

Mission Hill Creamery handcrafts premium-quality ice cream and desserts made from the finest, freshest, local organic ingredients. Ice cream-obsessed Chef/Owner Dave Kumec established the shop on Pacific Avenue as the first of its kind in Santa Cruz. His ice cream is also sold at Whole Foods, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, New Leaf Community Markets and Staff of Life. Congratulations Dave on your recent expansion and thriving business!

Dave received help with his expansion from the SBDC at Cabrillo College. SBDC Business Management Advisor Keith Holtaway was brought in to help strategize the expansion and provide help with procuring the necessary financing Dave was seeking from Santa Cruz Community Credit Union, our local, non-profit lending partner.

“I am happy to say that we have already hit our 2015 expansion goals for our wholesale business. We have expanded our distribution from Fresno to Reno to Napa, Sonoma, and Marin counties and all points in between. I couldn't have done it without the help of Keith Holtaway and the SBDC team.”
