Sparky's started out way back in a whole other century! Our store first opened as a Cold Stone Creamery back in the 90's. After many successful years as a top performing store, we parted ways with Cold Stone and Sparky's was founded.
Sparky's has an amazing history and experience level which makes us your premiere choice for ice cream. And, we are a truly Arizona company housed right here on Mill Ave in Tempe.
After all these years, in 2022, Sparky's was acquired by another truly Arizona owner and we plan to elevate Sparky's to a new level of quality and customer service.
That's a picture of Mr Cow but his friends just call him "Moo". He is our insider in the Arizona Dairy Industry. Moo is so supportive of the Arizona dairies that he won't even date a cow from another state.
And "no", Moo doesn't support eating more chicken. But, just like Sparky's, Moo supports all things Arizona. He tells us ice cream is a renewable resource and that Arizona cream is some of the best in the country (and he is in a position to know).
Sparky's keeps a close relationship with local dairies, so our product is always made from the freshest and highest quality product available. While our flavors may change with time you can always trust that Sparky's will always maintain our high standards.
Did you know that Sparky's churns fresh ice cream every day right here on Mill Ave in Tempe.
We combine the freshest ingredients with 100% cream delivered from their neighborhood Arizona dairy farmers.
Our ice cream is made from 16% butterfat, very little air and features a low sweetness level that lets each unique flavor shine through.
Our "small batches", made from scratch, ensures that Sparky's ice cream is superbly fresh! It hasn't been sitting in a freezer for weeks and that is a difference you can taste.
Sparky's is convienently located at the corner of 5th and Mill in old town Tempe.
