Meet the Mother/Daughter Team with Ice Cream Dreams – and Extensive Industry Experience

Sanibel’s Best Homemade Ice Cream owner, Laurie Verme, built her career in food service as a McDonald’s franchisee in Long Island. Drawn to Florida, she achieved her dream to settle on Sanibel Island in 2017, where she was joined by her daughter, Alice.

Together, they have perfected their homemade ice cream recipes as well as gelato, sorbeto, and sherbet. With an emphasis on quality ingredients, unique presentation, catchy names and a fun, colorful, and scrupulously maintained atmosphere, the Sanibel’s Best prototype location is an island favorite that keeps both visitors and locals coming back.

The commitment to quality, consistency and recognizable branding that created localized success makes it a strong offering in a popular franchise landscape.
