Classic Treats is a family owned and operated ice-cream business since 1976. We are still going strong today esp following the recent restoration of our vintage van and our fleet expansions currently under way.
Our mission is to consistently deliver premium ice-cream from the best and cleanest retro ice-cream vans in Australia with our professional staff.
Premium soft serve ice-cream is only produced with the finest of Italian ice-cream machines made by Carpigiani. Carpigiani was incorporated in 1946 and was the first company to produce a commercial soft serve ice-cream machine. We are proud to operate our original 1960’s Carpigiani machine that consistently produces a premium creamy, full bodied ice-cream as it did back in the day.
Classic Treats will only source the freshest supplies from reputable companies and partners such as Nestle, Cadbury and Dairy Farmers.
A Little History
Theo, our father’s best mate purchased our 1970 Ford Transit and built the ice-cream van mainly for street runs until 1985. Theo lived in Granville with his wife Soula and created many warm relationships with his customers while delivering his delicious desserts all over Sydney. Our father, Michael Draganis purchased the business from Theo when he moved back to Greece in 1986. Dad ran the ice-cream business successfully until 2001 when he developed serious health problems. He loved the freedom of the business and he cherished the relationships he built over time with his loyal customers.
Dad unfortunately lost his battle with cancer in 2002 but his legacy with Classic Treats continues on today. As kids, we used to help our father with the business so we quickly learnt all aspects of the operation.
In 2010 we commenced a 2yr painstaking journey to restore and rejuvenate our vintage Classic Treats van with a complete refurbishment. We spared no expense to keep the van as original as possible while enhancing and improving wherever we could. We are proud of the final result with the premium air brushing, stainless steel kitchen, illumination and leather appointments in the driving cabin. We believe our father would have been proud of the van transformation. The project was a labour of love for us and our love and respect goes to Dad who we feel is smiling on us and his special van from above.
Our family van has served happiness for over 4 decades and our passion is to continue this privilege into the future.
We look forward to helping you make your next event special with Classic Treats.
The Draganis Family
