About Howdy Homemade Ice Cream
We're all about two things: amazing ice cream and even better people. We hope to change the way the world looks at everyone.
Howdy Homemade was founded on a steel conviction that the restaurant industry is about people first, then food. It's a belief that has stood the test of timealmost two decadesand helped open 13 restaurants. In an industry marred by tremendous turnover, Tom still works with his first hire, Manuel Ramirez.
Howdy Homemade was born out of a vision to see, and realize, the potential of everyone. A special thanks to Gene Stallings' book, Another Season, and Proverbs, for igniting this passion.
Tom and Manuel have worked with numerous special needs organizations to hire, train, and employ people with Down syndrome and autism. Every aspect of Howdy Homemade encompasses the special needs of the huge under-employed segment of our population with one goal: To change the way businesses hire people with special needs. Today in North Texas alone, there are over 240,000 special needs adults looking for work!
