About Us | Four All Ice Cream

Who is behind Four All Ice Cream?



Ajoa, Founder and Chief Ice Cream Maker, created Four All with the dream of making handcrafted ice cream using all-natural, locally-sourced ingredients in order to provide a better choice for all ice cream lovers who want to indulge in a sweet treat without compromise to their well-being.


Her obsession with hand-crafted ice cream began during a heatwave in August 2003 when, instead of an air-conditioner she bought an ice cream machine.  Not only did she save money, the ice cream from the little machine was so good!  Fast forward to now, tons of ice cream experiments later, we're making the best possible ice cream we can in Kitchener-Waterloo.


We opened the doors of our factory and Tasting Room in Kitchener's old Bonnie Stuart factory building on Whitney Place in May of 2017. Since opening, the K-W community has let us know they believe in what we were doing and we've had opportunity to grow.  The Four All Factory space, formerly the Tasting Room, has been re-purposed to better serve our production needs and no longer serves ice cream.  But not to fret, the Four All Scoop Shop, opened in March 2020, continues to offer our tasty ice creams.  And our online shop, which offers curbside pick-up and delivery, is always an option.  And of course we have many wonderful STOCKISTS that allow us to spread the joy of ice cream throughout Southern Ontario.

How does Four All Ice Cream make better ice cream?


We start our ice cream with fresh, all-natural, local Guernsey cow milk from Eby Manor farm, combined with local cream.  We pasteurize our ice cream base in small batches at our Kitchener facility (aka the Four All Factory); which is also the smallest dairy plant in Ontario (400 square feet)! From there we combine local and/or responsibly sourced ingredients to achieve robust, full, deep flavour profiles - which are best described as "tasting deliciously real".


Four All Ice Cream is better because through our partnerships with local farmers, producers & other small-batch makers we create fresh and seasonal flavours that support local and showcase the best of Kitchener-Waterloo region. We are continuously looking to collaborate with creative minds and makers!

What's with the name Four All? Does it mean anything?



The name Four All is inspired by Ajoa's family of four's ice cream preferences.  Her husband is into classic time-tested flavours, like Cookies & Cream.  Her oldest daughter's milk sensitivities has her reaching for vegan options; Raspberry Sorbet is a favourite.  Her youngest daughter always chooses flavours that are reminiscent of childhood; Mint Chip for example. While Ajoa's tastes veer towards foodie flavours inspired by interesting culinary combinations, like whiskey and caramel with spiced pecans.  In dreaming up new flavours to satisfy all four of them the name Four All Ice Cream was born.  


Being mindful to ensure there would always be a choice for all ice cream lovers, four flavour categories were created: CLASSIC - Timeless. Understated. Constant., VEGAN - Mindful and Delightful, CHILDHOOD - Throwback Goodness, FOODIE - Adventures in Ice Cream.
