About Us


We served up the following on all the busy mall patrons:

Ice cream



All the while serving the great state of Arizona, as well as Southern CA and Nevada with our catering. Ice cream socials, barbecues, burgers, breakfasts, corporate events or full service weddings, you name it, we catered it! After 22 years, we decided to leave VF mall and expand to a full ­service restaurant while still doing catering to our many corporate clients.

Our Apple Dumpling Cafe moved to three different locations, each busier and more successful than it’s previous location.

Our Gilbert location became a hit around the community and valley wide, getting recognition from the East Valley Tribune, Fox 10 news, and being named 2013 best restaurant in Queen Creek with honors at the Taste of Gilbert.

After many successful years with Apple Dumplings, and 15+ grandkids, we decided to sell Apple Dumplings so we (Floyd, Tyler, and Anna) could re­focus their attention to catering and Sue could focus on her grandchildren and community involvement.

After an additional 17 years in full-service restaurants, a large corporation clientele, and since 1986 on June 1, 2019, facing increasing rents it was decided to leave full service to concentrate on full ice cream and food catering.

Keep us in mind for all your catering needs, birthdays, weddings, corporate events, and fundraising. For more information contact us via website or phone.

We are proud to be one of the largest if not the largest ice cream event companies devoted to Events in Arizona, Southern California and Las Vegas. At Creative Ice Cream we bring the ice cream parlor to your place or their place.
