Learn the history of Mooresville Ice Cream Company and DeLuxe Ice Cream



Generations of ice cream lovers continue to delight in the rich flavors of Mooresville's DeLuxe Ice Cream.

It all started back in 1924 with the founding of the Mooresville Ice Cream Company. The headline in the Mooresville Enterprise on February 21, 1924 announced, "Mooresville is to have an Ice Cream Factory." The rest... as they say... is history.

By 1947, R.C. Millsaps had bought out all of the original investors. For the next three generations, his family ran the business and Deluxe became known for its premium quality. Now, more than 85 years later, the tradition continues.

Mooresville's quality is evident in a full line of novelty, home and scoop products, including unique items such as the famous DeLuxe Nutty Cone and the Mooresville Bar.

In September 2009, a partnership of the Stamey family of Statesville and the Alarcon family of Ecuador purchased the company from the Millsaps family with a commitment to maintain and grow the DeLuxe brand and the Mooresville Ice Cream Company.

Today, as in the past, Mooresville Ice Cream is still a family-based organization that looks forward to continuing the tradition of bringing a high quality, local dairy product to market and maintaining strong ties to the community and the region.
