In the fall of 2008, a young couple who shared a love for each other and for food, came together to form an ice cream company in their head. “Bo & Jo’s Ice Cream” was to be inspired by their Cuban roots and make Cuban inspired ice cream flavors for our local community.

In the fall of 2008, a young couple who shared a love for each other and for food, came together to form an ice cream company in their head. “Bo & Jo’s Ice Cream” was to be inspired by their Cuban roots and make Cuban inspired ice cream flavors for our local community. Mike & Elena started to work on their dream and created a few flavors with varying degrees of success. Their first creation was a guava and cream cheese flavor, inspired by childhood snacks. It exists today as Sweet Melody’s “Bo & Jo’s Guava Cream Cheese”. Sadly, Elena became ill and passed away in the summer of 2009. A broken heart and a desire to move on led to the end of that company.

Fast forward to January of 2016:

I’m a single dad to a 3 year old daughter, Melody, and working in the catering business. I started dabbling in making ice cream again and within a couple of weeks, almost as if by some magical force, I was obsessed with making ice cream. With determination, I dug my heels into becoming the best I could possibly be at my craft. I decided to only use the best ingredients at my disposal and put all my love into it. I would name the company after the great love of my life, my beautiful little girl. And that was the birth of Sweet Melody Crafted Ice Cream Co.!

I strive constantly to improve every day at what I do and make my community smile, one scoop at a time!
