Our #WednesdayWarrior this week is mother of two, wife, #GirlBoss and small business owner, Yvette Cuthbert!
Originally from Australia, Yvette moved to beautiful Port Moody in 2002 and took the ever-growing local ice cream shop, Rocky Point Ice Cream, by the reins alongside her husband, Jamie. Over time, the tiny storefront in Rocky Point Park has expanded to two ice cream trucks plus a trailer, collaborations with various local businesses, numerous award-wins including “Best Company” at the Small Business BC Awards, a cookbook, and now a new location in New Westminster, set to open this May. Yvette prides herself in employing local students, giving back to the community and being the best boss she can be.
Yvette grew up in a home with entrepreneurial parents, which she says has shaped her into who she is today. She continues to be inspired each and every day by her community, her charismatic staff, her two children and her Gran.
Thanks for sharing your story and inspiring others, Yvette!
