Patience is the key because each order is made to order. You place your order and then you watch it being created right in front of your eyes. There is a safety glass between you and the nitrogen. Only one ice cream order at a time is made. 

It is really fun to watch, especially for children. But if you have not seen nitrogen ice cream being made as an adult, you are in for a treat.

How Sub Zero Ice Cream in Downtown Provo Started

Jerry Hancock loves improving processes and products. He studied chemistry at Brigham Young University and knows much about design and sales. He brought lots of innovative concepts to the frozen dessert industry. What does Jerry love about Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream? It’s freezing cold!

His go-to ice cream combo? Raspberry and coconut with mixed berries! 

Naomi Hancock was a teacher and a park ranger, and she had a degree in English and secondary education. Her background complements Jerry’s passion. She thinks Sub Zero ice cream is unique. Her ice cream of choice? Caramel amaretto with brownies. 

In 2004, Jerry and Naomi started Sub Zero Ice Cream. People loved it from the start! Now, Sub Zero is in the US and worldwide, offering numerous franchise opportunities. 

In 2005, Jerry got a patent for his innovative ice cream freezing process. He made it even better and received a patent encompassing all aspects of the Sub Zero freezing and serving process in 2014. 

In 2008, Sub Zero opened its first franchise location. They now have more than 34 shops, including one in the Bahamas! There are more coming soon. 

In 2013, Sub Zero went on a famous TV show called Shark Tank. The people there loved their ice cream but didn’t invest. But the show helped a lot! Sub Zero got much bigger, from 18 to over 30 shops. 

In 2017, Sub Zero was recognized as one of the “10 Best Franchises to Buy From Shark Tank'' by Forbes. Their unique freezing method using liquid nitrogen to customize each order impressed many. 

Fun Facts About Nitrogen

Ever wondered why Sub Zero Ice Cream tastes so amazing? It’s all because of nitrogen! Instead of the usual way of making ice cream, they use liquid nitrogen at -321 degrees. This makes the ice cream freeze fast, making it smooth, creamy, and fresh! 

Here are some fun things about nitrogen: 

  • It’s odorless, tasteless, and colorless.
  • More than half of the air we breathe is nitrogen.
  • Liquid nitrogen is non-toxic.
  • Nitrogen makes up three percent of our body weight.
  • Liquid nitrogen melts at super-low temperature of -210 degrees Celsius or -346 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Earth has a lot more nitrogen in its atmosphere than Mars does.

Sub Zero Ice Cream at Shark Tank 

Jerry and Naomi took their Sub Zero Ice Cream to the show Shark Tank, asking for a $300,000 investment in exchange for 12% of their company. They wowed the Sharks by making fresh ice cream, offering many flavors in under a minute. 

Sub Zero Ice Cream already had two stores and 18 franchises, making $2 million in sales then and planning for $4 million for the upcoming year. The couple had trouble before, losing $500,000 in a bad partnership. They wanted the Sharks’ help to make up for that. 

Some of the Sharks weren’t interested. Daymond John felt he lacked the time to develop the business, while Kevin O’Leary didn’t find the product intriguing enough. Robert Herjavec didn’t want to add more partners. Lori Greiner thought the couple could succeed independently. Mark Cuban didn’t want to invest in an ice cream business. 

Even without a deal, being on Shark Tank helped a lot! Sales at most Sub Zero Ice Cream places tripled, so they kept growing across the US and other countries. 

Even though the Sharks said no, people loved their ice cream!

About the author of Move to Provo Utah Website 

Katerina Gasset

When I moved here I was blessed to have my daughter to help with different things you need to know when you move to a new place. I had background from living here before but things have changed a lot too since the '80s. 

We were able to get all the good places to eat down fast - since she knows all that and we have a lot of the same likes in food. But things like how to turn on my electricity or what power company services my home... well... I was at a total loss! 

I know that other people moving to Provo don't always have family here to guide and help them. And most people don't have a real estate agent who gives them a welcome package on all the important numbers and places they need to know. 

My goal is for this website to be your go to resource for everything you need to know before, during, and after you move here to Provo, Utah. I want you to have the best experience and love living here as much as I do
