When owners Suzy and Todd met in 2013, they began to toss around ideas for a business they could operate together. Fontana hadn’t had an ice cream shop for decades, so they pretty quickly zeroed in on that idea. They purchased the iconic downtown Fontana building, the SS Fontana, and opened the shop, Blue Heaven Ice Cream, in the spring of 2019. The name Blue Heaven originated about 35 years ago, when Suzy started coming up to Fontana. It’s kind of based on an emotion... the one you get when you cross the state line and roll down the windows for that first blast of fresh air, or when you’re coming downhill from Walworth and get that first glimpse of the navy blue lake. You just go “ahhhh.” Fontana is like Blue Heaven to Suzy and Todd, and they thought it was a perfect name for their shop. The vibe just fit!
