After spending time in Hawaii, Matthew Matchin was inspired to return to the mainland to pursue vegan ice cream with his mother, Jo Matchin. After leaving her job of over a decade, it was divine timing that this duo reunited to create what would be the most delicious ice cream on the planet. Before this creation would ignite, Matthew visited Matt Kurtyka in St. Pete, as Matt had moved there in pursuit of a creative lifestyle months ago. Matthew fell in love with St. Pete, Jo moved down and the three began cultivating Plant Love Ice Cream.
Soon after the three were located in St. Pete, Plant Love began integrating with the community, sharing ice cream with all of those in search of a delicious, non-dairy treat. After several of the most challenging months ever, the storefront opened in January 19', decorated from head to toe with loving intention and hard work. Filled with art, craftsmanship, plants and ice cream, the Plant Love team is excited more than ever before to be a part of the community, and support businesses, creatives, the community and so much more.
