Meet Our Team


Favorite Flavor: Peanut Butter

Mark is the face of Mark’s Homemade Ice Cream. He graduated from The University of Akron in May of 2018 and returned to his hometown to focus on making the best ice cream you’ve ever tasted! Mark casts the vision, creates and perfects recipes, investigates wholesaling options, and helps to manage the day to day operations. His wife, Allison, joined the Mark’s Homemade Team officially in November 2018. 


Favorite Flavor: Strawberry (But she is lobbying for Grape!)

Allison (Mark's wife) began her ice cream journey in the summer of 2018 helping Mark in the truck. She has a natural way of making people feel welcome and has never met a stranger (good attributes for serving ice cream!) Allison and Mark currently live in Bucyrus, and Allison works as an intervention specialist with Marion Schools.


Favorite Flavor: Cookies & Cream

Ed (Mark’s dad) is the self-proclaimed flavor think-tank, truck remodel/maintenance guru, and generally does “whatever needs done.”  Evenings and weekends, you may see him in the ice cream truck, but his day job is buying corn for a local hog operation.

Jenny Lynne

Favorite Flavor: Cookies & Cream

Jenny Lynne (Mark’s mom) is a “sous chef” of sorts. She assists in the kitchen by prepping ingredients and tweaking recipes, in addition to scheduling events and general office management. Talking with customers while serving them ice cream gives her great joy!


Favorite Flavor: Peanut Butter

Lydia (Mark’s sister) runs the ice cream truck with intense perfection. She knows the process of opening and closing the truck for business, takes orders, makes change, and scoops ice cream. Her spunk and desire to do things right makes her an asset in the truck. In Lydia’s spare time she enjoys baking. Her most recent creation, lemon blueberry cake, may give Mark’s ice cream a run for it’s money at some point!


Favorite Flavor: Butter Pecan

Lindsey (Mark’s sister) is part of our marketing team and uses her creative talent to develop Facebook posts and other marketing materials. Lindsey’s contagious smile can often be found in the ice cream truck, when she isn’t busy running her piano studio in Akron, OH.


Favorite Flavor: Peanut Butter

Jordan (Mark’s brother in law) is also part of our marketing team, which is a good fit since he has a marketing degree! Along with his business sense, Jordan’s friendly, outgoing spirit brings life to a busy ice cream scooping day. His day job finds him coordinating creative arts and leading worship at Grace Church in Akron, OH.
