Mister Softee of Southern California is owned and operated by Jeff and Bobbi Hiller of Camarillo, California. Mister Softee was founded in 1956 by the Conway brothers in Philadelphia, and has over 350 franchisees with over 600 ice cream trucks on the road. The Hiller family is very excited to bring this wonderful tradition to Southern California.
Jeff and Bobbi moved to Ventura County in 2009 and fell in love with the area. In October 2014, after 16 years with the same company, it was a shock to Jeff when he was no longer employed. It turns out though, it was a blessing in disguise. Getting out of the corporate world, making the decision to stay in Ventura County and deciding to put their effort and experience into growing their own business has resulted in this venture, and they couldn’t be more excited. The Hillers love soft serve ice cream, parties, festivals, ice cream socials, fun and generally making people happy, so once they found Mister Softee, they knew they had found the perfect business.
“We have partnered with Food Share of Ventura County and will be donating 1% of our annual profit to them as well as providing support for food drives and other events.
Fundraising is a huge part of our business and we look forward to helping numerous organizations throughout the year with their fund raising efforts.” –Jeff Hiller
