With more than ten years experience, Mr Bryan has become a trusted and valued member of the Nashville area community, not only providing top quality safe, reliable and courteous service to thousands of kids and adults, but also supporting various ministries such as Mission 615, Faith Family Clinic, and others, feeding the homeless, and providing support with food, clothing and other resources.
This is a business that really cares about its customers, putting both safety and integrity ahead of profit. Mr Bryan's philosophy is ridiculously simple:
"I treat other people's children the way I would want my own treated. That means treating them with the respect they deserve as valued clients and you'd be amazed how quickly they respond with exceptionally good manners and behavior. It also means being totally transparent, providing parents with my cell phone number and welcoming their participation and supervision at all times. Nothing inside or outside my truck is ever hidden from view.
That's just common sense in my opinion. I was a Dad long before I was the ice cream man and I fully understand the concerns that parents can have about those who do business with their children. I'm happy to say that those concerns melt away rapidly once parents spend a few minutes around my truck. The atmosphere is jolly. The comedy is constant, but underneath it all I keep a watchful eye on these kids and their well being.
I might joke and tell the kids that dead people don't buy a lot of ice cream, so they have to be careful, but they know I'm deadly serious when it comes to them watching for cars before they cross the road. The delivery might be humorous but the message gets across every time."
