Mister Softee China

Mister Softee China is the first ice cream truck to operate in mainland China.

We are the owners of Mister Softee China, which we started in Suzhou, China in 2006. The original Mister Softee was started in Philadelphia in 1956 by brothers' James and William Conway, and remains a family run business today. We (Alex, Turner, and Jeffrey) own the franchise rights to Mister Softee for China and have been operating ice cream trucks and stores in Suzhou since 2006. As of today we own and operate two stores, six trucks, and work with one franchisee.
