After spending time in Hawaii, Mateo was inspired to return to the mainland to pursue vegan ice cream with Mama Jo. 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 the ignition of creation, Mateo visited Matt in St. Pete. Mateo fell in love with St. Pete, Jo moved down and the three began cultivating Plant Love.
It took months of preparation, concocting the perfect ice cream formula, erecting a storefront and sharing the love via markets until the team opened the doors in January 19'. Infused with art, ice cream and love the Plant Love team continued to spread their passion throughout the Tampa Bay area. With gratitude and excitement, Plant Love is here to support the community of amazing people and local businesses with quality, dairy-free ice cream!
"Plant Love and watch it grow"
