This is who...
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We just love ice cream!
Bonkey's started back in 1993 with a snoball stand in Baltimore County at Fullerton Field. The idea was simple. Provide folks with awesome snoballs with countless flavor combinations.
Almost 30 years later, our Homemade Ice Cream dominates. Our Snoball roots actually began in 1953 when my Dad (15 years old) had a Snoball business on Loch Raven Blvd using ice from the Milkman. My Grandmother made his delicious, most popular Homemade Egg Custard Flavor.
Together with our family: Children, Parents, Nieces & Nephews, we've
kept our 6 scoop shops & mobile catering businesses running smoothly.
Alongside us is our 50-70 staff members employed each season and we wouldn't
be where we are today without them.
2022 will be our 29th year keeping “hot people cool!”
Thanks to our God, our awesome customers, neighbors, employees, and family.
