Mr Whippy New Zealand

Mr Whippy has a strong New Zealand heritage – Kiwi summers at the beach, childhood memories, nostalgia and family values. It is New Zealand owned and operated and has been since it first arrived here from the United Kingdom more than 50 years ago.

Mr Whippy has strong brand awareness (97%) driven by its long history, product and extensive franchisee network. There are currently 50 ice cream vans operating throughout New Zealand, and this number is constantly growing with new franchisees joining the network and existing operators expanding their businesses. It’s no secret that Kiwis love ice cream, and in fact, we consume the most ice cream per capita in the world. The Mr Whippy ice cream truck shares a special place in New Zealand history and our goal is to better service each New Zealand region.
