Kendra Carberry-Walters used her love for ice cream to fill a gap in the market for healthier alternatives with Tai Tai Ice Cream Rolls.

Kendra Carberry-Walters embodies the spirit of entrepreneurship.

The University of the West Indies graduate spent a few years working at the World Bank, but heeded to what she says was her calling to operate her own business.

“It was a job I enjoyed, I was comfortable. But I’m not looking to just be comfortable,” she said, noting that it brings her much fulfillment to build on something of her own.

She was able to use her love for ice cream to fill a gap in the market for healthier alternatives and set up Tai Tai Ice Cream Rolls.

“I wanted to be able to enjoy the treat, whenever I want, and how many times I want,” said Carberry-Walters. 

The enterprising entrepreneur would later do some research on the popular icy treat and come up with the idea to do ice cream rolls – freshly made ice cream rolled in thin slices.

It’s been only three months since Carberry-Walters opened the boutique ice cream parlour in Northside Plaza, Liguanea and she’s reporting steady traffic and strong interest in her ice-cream rolls fuelled by great customer service and a wide range of flavours, toppings, and options for general ice cream lovers and vegan customers.

Carberry-Walters said there are plans to expand the business through franchising opportunities.

“I believe we have an excellent product and the market is quite receptive to healthier options, so franchising the businesses will enable us to expand at a much quicker rate,” Carberry-Walters reasoned.
