Marshall Tucker and his wife, Verda, left their Chico California home in the spring of 1941 planning to establish an Ice Cream business.
Mr. Tucker had learned the business from his aunt and uncle in the city of Chico (and that ice cream store is operating there to this day). On their drive, they chanced to venture into the island city of Alameda looking to find a lunch place off the beaten track. What they found was a unique and warm community. After taking a few days to explore the town, they decided that Alameda would make an ideal home in which to raise their children and build a business.
He began building a business founded on the ideals of buying the best quality products to put in his ice cream, which he called SUPER CREAMED Ice Cream. Through the years, Tucker’s Ice Cream grew to be a central meeting place and a solid supporter of the community by investing in and supporting the youth of Alameda through sports and other community youth programming.
Lauren and Stephen, siblings and fourth generation Alamedans who grew up celebrating with Tucker’s Ice Cream, together with Erika and Joshua, their spouses and massive ice cream aficionados, are excited about keeping Tucker’s Ice Cream local and family owned while continuing the more than 70 year long tradition of supporting the Tucker’s community.
Most of all, Tucker’s still makes Alameda’s finest ice cream, and in its beautiful location, either sitting in the patio on a warm day, or with one’s feet by the fireplace on a winter’s evening, one can enjoy stolen moments while reminiscing of a time gone by!
