Q. What is the Mean Green Ice Cream Machine?
A. The coolest ice cream truck in Tennessee. Check out the newest trucks with wild graphics which you will be impressed to have show at your event. No creepy van or truck with bad stickers. Our company now has two Mean Green Ice Cream Machines to cover the many events in Middle TN area. Both have awesome graphics sure to 'Wow the Crowd'. Originally, the first Mean Green Ice Cream Machine (MGICM) was an original white 1975 Chevy International Good Humor ice cream truck. The truck had seen better days from the many years of service delivering ice cream. The outside was stripped down to bare metal, repainted in a bright green paint with customized vinyl graphics added. The truck then continued its transformation with custom hydraulics installed along with a powerful sound system, green neon, video, custom rims and other features. The freezers were completely overhauled and steam cleaned. In 2016, we have again ripped thre truck apart and replaced the entire inside from floor to freezers in order to bring you the best ice cream truck in Nashville. Sadly, the original truck was put out of service in 2018 after 40 years. we now have two updated cube style vans to bring the best ice cream desserts right to you!
