Whip ‘n Dip has been family owned and operated since it was founded in 1985 by George Giampetro, Sr. and his wife Nancy. Their children – George Jr. and Kathy – worked alongside George Sr. and Nancy to build what has become Miami’s Best Homemade Ice Cream Shoppe. While Kathy and Nancy dedicated endless hours to create some of the most amazing ice cream flavors in all of South Florida (like pistachio, mango, cookies & cream, and mint chip), George Sr. and Jr. dedicated their time to growing and nurturing what is now known as a staple in the city of Coral Gables.
Whip ‘n Dip is not only home to Miami’s best ice cream, but also to a team of people who seek to strengthen our small business community. From partnering with local businesses and the University of Miami, to teaming up with local homeowners by virtue of ‘The Mango Swap’, where neighbors bring in mangoes from their backyards to exchange it for a pint or quart of ice cream, our Shoppe and the South Miami/Coral Gables community truly share an amazing relationship.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the hard work and excellent customer service of our dedicated staff. Whip ‘n Dip could not have created a fun, family atmosphere without the help of some of our community’s best young men and women. Whip ‘n Dip makes a point of hiring fun, engaging and hard-working employees, who always welcome our guests with a smile. Amazingly, Whip ‘n Dip is proud that 5 sets of our employees met while working at our Shoppe, and eventually got married! And that sums up what is special about Whip ‘n Dip: while some find love and others find friendships that will last a lifetime, ultimately, from our customers to our employees, we are all part of the Whip ‘n Dip family.
