Welcome to Moojo, pronounced /mo͞o/ like the sound of our grass grazed cows and /jō/ like your average Joe. But here at Moojo, we are far from average. With our warm cookies made locally and baked daily and our gourmet, all-natural ice cream, everyone is sure to find a powerful combination that satisfies their sweet tooth or their salty cravings. But beyond the warm cookies and gourmet ice cream are warm people with gourmet stories. Moojo is more than a product, it is an experience. For the moments that make us laugh, smile, chuckle, blush and smirk, Moojo is here to share them with you and with everyone else. Here, we capture, share and celebrate your most joyous moments—big or small, lasting or transient, unexpected or planned. So wave your ice cream sandwiches in the air on the behalf of real ingredients enjoyed by real people sharing real moments of joy. Sit back and let the Moojo flow, and share a moment of joy.
The story of MOOJO starts with Matt Petersen and Matt Weldon. Partnerships come in all shapes and sizes and the Matts work together as well as warm cookies and ice cream. So in March of 2014 they set their sights on Texas to realize their dream of opening an ice cream sandwich shop.
Petersen and his pregnant wife Ashley packed up their two dogs (one very small and one very large) and all their belongings, loaded them into their Jeep and hit the rocky road from Northern California. Weldon came down from Chicago to meet those two cookies in Austin. Ashley was bursting with joy that shortly thereafter became a moment of joy, Bennett, a bouncing boy of 8 LBS, and so MOOJO was born.
The Matts have always loved ice cream sandwiches and Ashley has always had a passion for creating and eating anything gooey and scrumptious so we came together to create these pretty awesome desserts. Eating natural, fresh and sustainable foods has always been a part of our lifestyle and we are really excited to bring fresh, homemade products to Moojo.
Always inspired by the amazing food scene in Austin and a love for all its quirks and character, we believed it was a natural choice for us to land here and we are honored to become a part of the local food culture.
Our purpose is to encourage the world to let go & experience the joy of natural ice cream sandwiched between two freshly baked, warm cookies!
