After 19 years, former owner of Albuquerque ice cream shop reflects on sale

by Alice

Bill Warren, the former owner of I Scream Ice Cream in Albuquerque, recently reflected on his decision to sell the business after nearly two decades of operation. Warren opened the shop in 2005 with the goal of creating a family-friendly environment where people could enjoy ice cream and have a good time.

Over the years, I Scream Ice Cream became known for its nostalgic ambiance, adorned with Warren’s extensive collection of 1940s and 1950s antiques and vintage items. However, due to health issues in his family and his inability to maintain the demanding schedule of running the shop, Warren made the difficult decision to pass on his legacy.

Elycia Martinez-Davis, who frequented the shop with her father, saw an opportunity to continue Warren’s vision and took over the business in February. Martinez-Davis plans to preserve the shop’s vintage charm while adding her own touch, including vintage malt mixers and her experience as a former soda jerk at the 66 diner on Central Avenue.

Despite stepping away from the day-to-day operations, Warren still remains involved with the business, cherishing the camaraderie and connections he made with customers over the years. He expressed gratitude to the city of Albuquerque and the people of New Mexico for their support throughout his tenure as the owner of I Scream Ice Cream.

Warren’s dedication to providing a memorable experience for his customers earned him recognition from Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller, and even a spot on Yelp’s list of the Top 100 Ice Cream Shops for 2023. As he bids farewell to his beloved shop, Warren’s legacy of creating joy and nostalgia through ice cream lives on in the hands of Martinez-Davis.
