Show Notes

The Three Guys play "What movie was this song in"?  They interview Chill-N Nitrogen Ice Cream CEO David Leonardo. 

David Leonardo is CEO of Chill-N Nitrogen Ice Cream.  A custom-order ice cream shop that uses liquid nitrogen to flash freeze your ice cream, instead of the traditional churn method.  The new-school-Chill-N way has your ice cream made just moments before you eat it. That freshness results in a way smoother and more flavorful individualized bowl of ice cream that will leave you satisfied and yearning for more.

David graduated from Boston University with a double major in Finance/MIS.  He begins by discussing his love for the arts, moving to Haverhill, Massachusetts from New York City, involvement in student government, winning a State title in wrestling his senior year in High School, and his appreciation and thankfulness to all his mentors along the way.  David dives into what made him successful as a wrestler which he attributes a lot to his coach and teammates. 

David gets into how he landed his first job on Wall Street at JP Morgan then his shift to franchising.  He dives into entrepreneurship, private equity, growing businesses, being an art dealer, working in M&A for Burger King,  his involvement with a pet franchise, and becoming CEO of Chill-N Nitrogen Ice Cream.  He explains challenges along the way due to COVID, and some changes they made to overcome them.  He breaks down the process used to make their ice cream, importance of customer service, and developing their mobile ordering business.   

David shares some funny stories with listeners, and ends with answering a very important question from the guys.
