Amy’s Ice Creams Lands in Dripping Springs

Amy's Ice Creams, an Iconic Woman-Owned Austin Staple, Heads to Dripping Springs

In the heart of Texas Hill Country, where the cows roam and the wildflowers bloom, a new player is about to shake up the ice cream scene: Amy's Ice Creams. But hold onto your waffle cones, folks, because this isn’t your grandma's ice cream parlor—it's a bold sanctuary of frozen delights. 

Leading the charge into this frozen frontier is none other than Amy Miller, a self-proclaimed ice cream aficionado with a penchant for pushing boundaries. With a bachelor’s degree in biology and psychology tucked under her belt, Miller could have been dissecting and digging somewhere. But no, she had bigger dreams—dreams drenched in sprinkles and doused in hot fudge.

After a stint at Steve’s Ice Cream, Amy decided to break free from the vanilla norms of corporate life and forge her own path. Thus, Amy’s Ice Creams was born in the quirky streets of Austin back in 1984. And let me tell you, it was (and still is!) a game changer. With flavors so wild they’d make Willy Wonka blush and a commitment to community that would make Mr. Rogers proud, Amy’s became an instant hit. 

But Miller wasn't content with just scooping up ice cream. So she donned her boxing gloves (yes, you read that right) and became the first female professional boxer in the Lone Star State. We call that a knockout combo of brains and brawn!

Fast forward to today, and Miller’s empire continues to spread. With 18 stores sprinkled across Texas, Amy's is a force to be reckoned with. 

And now, drumroll, please … Dripping Springs is about to get a taste of the action.

Why Dripping Springs, you ask? Well, why not? With its Hill Country charm and an appetite for adventure as big as the Texas stars and sky, Dripping Springs is the perfect playground for Amy's brand of culinary mischief.

So what can you expect from the grand opening shindig? Oh, just your usual dose of sprinkles and delights. From ribbon-cutting ceremonies to free ice cream bonanzas, merchandise prizes and special offers, Amy's is pulling out all the stops. 

“Our grand opening is more than just a celebration; it’s a testament to our commitment to creating unforgettable experiences,” says Miller. “We’re not just serving ice cream; we’re serving up joy and kindness, one scoop at a time.”

So buckle up, buttercups, because Amy's Ice Creams is about to take Dripping Springs by storm. It's going to be a wild ride filled with flavor, flair, and a whole lot of fun. So grab your spoons and get ready to indulge because, in the world of Amy's, every day is a party in a cone (or a cup!).  |  @amysicecreams
