We roll each individual ice cream order with the freshest ingredients right in front of your eyes.
In under two minutes!
We turn liquid cream to ice cream in under two minutes. Using an advanced cold plate that reaches temperatures well below -10°F, the ice cream produces smaller ice molecules to make it naturally smoother and creamier, eliminating the need to add in additional fat and emulsifiers to create the same rich, creamy texture we love in ice cream.

On August 30th, 1991 Major Pettaway was born in the lower south side of Providence, RI. At the age of eleven, his entrepreneurial spirit began to form as he worked with his father on creating a food truck and a clothing business. It was a difficult and enlightening experience but this was when his creator mindset was conceived as oppose to just being a consumer. He understood the importance of innovating, for consumers live in the world of creators. Growing up, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were entrepreneurs that inspired Major to be as revolutionary as they were. In 2011 Major joined the United States Marine Corps as an infantrymen. He joined the Marine Corps because they embodied the warrior spirit that manifested from his years as a martial artist. In 2013 he deployed to Afghanistan. Humbled by the lack of opportunity he witnessed in the country, he has devoted his life to creating opportunity for all. Having other Marines under his command sharpened the already existing leadership skills that he gained through the years. Major firmly believes in being a servant leader by taking care of his team and bringing out their potential. This philosophy was later reaffirmed by his mentor Jorge Elorza, the Mayor of Providence. Major is a Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Rhode Island’s first Thai ice cream company, Mike’s Ice in the memory of his fellow service member and dear friend Micheal Gnoato.
Sadam J. Salas was born in Providence, RI on February 27, 1992. As a child he observed his father, Nicolas Salas, build as he is a respected mechanic in the community. This sparked a passion for creating and innovation. He developed a hard worker philosophy from a young age for taking the easy route only leads to a disappointing destination. As an intuitive deep thinker in 2006 he received the Inner City Scholarship which focuses on minorities with exceptional academic abilities. With the aid of the scholarship Sadam attended the prestigious Bishop Hendriken high school. He continued his education at the Community College of Rhode Island to become a civil engineer. With the inner workings of a civil engineer and his passion for cars he built his beloved Honda civic. On May 8th, 2016 the courageous Sadam J. Salas deployed to Iraq as a member of the construction battalion. Coming back from deployment filled with an entrepreneur spirit, Sadam co-found and serves as the chief financial officer for Rhode Island’s first Thai Ice Cream Company, Mike’s Ice in the loving memory of Micheal Gnoato.

Mike’s Ice is Rhode Island’s first Thai-inspired Ice cream company. Thai ice cream rolls originated in the world renowned street food scene of Thailand. The process starts off with a liquid ice cream base and other fresh ingredients. It then undergoes a swift and skillful mixing procedure. When frozen to the perfect temperature, the mixture is then rolled into delicious ice cream and customized with fresh toppings. This process causes the ice cream to produce smaller ice molecules resulting in a smoother, creamier, and richer finish. It also eliminates the need to include unwanted additives resulting in a healthier more natural product than traditional ice cream. Mike’s ice was created to honor our dear friend Micheal Gnoato who passed away on August 15th, 2013.
The mission of Mike’s Ice is to better the lives veterans of all branches and services. In order to achieve this goal we will focus on our social, product, and economic missions.
Social: To effectively make a social impact we will work organizations that provide services for veterans in need.
