Salt & Straw was founded by cousins Kim and Tyler Malek in Portland OR in 2011 and presently has kitchens and scoop shops in Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, and Wiz Bang Bar in Portland, a soft serve dessert bar. Every ice cream flavor is handmade in small three-gallon batches in local kitchens using only all natural cream from nearby farms and the best local, organic and sustainable ingredients. Classic flavors are joined by seasonal flavor menus that rotate every four weeks and vary from city to city. Their ice cream is available for online purchase and can be shipped anywhere in the United States. Salt & Straw’s strong community roots and dedication to giving back drives everything they do, from collaborating with artisans and farmers, to hiring from within their community to actively supporting local schools and raising awareness for issues like childhood hunger, and equal rights.
