Twenty-nine years ago today, Demetres (née Demétre) was born from a great grandson’s love of ice cream, and his intention to honor a family legacy from 1907 North Carolina. Since then, we have opened up numerous locations across the GTA, all with the same focus on producing high quality house-made ice cream. We’ve gone through many iterations of our menu and our logo since then, and we’re still looking to up our game. However, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so today we’re taking a moment to celebrate!
