The Story of Lappert’s Ice Cream


Lappert’s Hawaii

Walter Lappert started the company in 1983 after months of brainstorming and planning sessions with his wife Mary and his son Michael.

These discussions were held around the green marble table in his home, as well as at the small ice cream shop he owned in Sausalito California. His shop then served a locally produced ice cream which Walter always felt could be improved on, but mostly Walter wanted to make and sell ice cream in Kauai; his favorite place in the world to visit. “I want to open a store that makes and sells ice cream in Kauai” he said, and so the plan was made.

If you visit the factory in Hanapepe Kauai, you will see the original building Walter built, and although it has changed quite a bit since the early days, his original concept of the highest quality product continues.


If you live west of the Rockies [Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming], you can order 6 pints of Lappert’s ice cream [shipped FedEx overnight & packed with dry ice in an insulated box] including Kauai Pie for $140.
