When the television program that’s known for “Turning Ordinary Cars into Extraordinary Machines” met an ice cream truck, sparks began to fly.
Cold Stone Creamery and the Monster Garage have teamed up to construct the ultimate ice cream truck. The episode will air at 8 pm (ET/PT) April 3 on the Discovery Channel.
Jesse James and his “Build Team” turn a 1977 Chevy ice cream delivery truck carrying 500 pounds of ice cream and freezing equipment into a souped-up racing vehicle. This machine will take on the experts at the International Ice Racing Association championships on a frozen lake in Minnesota. The Build Team includes Springboro OH resident and Cold Stone franchisee/area developer Don Smith.
Monster Garage takes a dream team of mechanics and places them in a garage equipped to transform an ordinary vehicle into an extraordinary machine—all within one week.
Headquartered in Scottsdale AZ, Cold Stone Creamery has more than 1,250 stores worldwide.
