Hello and thank you for stopping by! My name is Matt Carpenter and I am a Manitou Springs local and the owner/operator of the Colorado Custard Company.
My daughter, Kyla, and I love to eat ice cream! There are about 15 places that serve it in Manitou Springs which makes for some great weekend "tours de ice cream." More often than not we ended up at the Colorado Custard Company both for the great Custard and the reasonable price. While pretty much any ice cream is good family fun, the taste of Custard always had us saying, "WOW!" And because the flavor choices are endless we can always try something new. In fact, we could try 150 combinations an hour for 50 years and not cover them all!
So when the previous owner wanted to retire I bought the company (Read the story here - 469Kb PDF). It's been awesome and I love getting to meet so many people—both locals and tourists alike. As a runner I especially enjoy chatting with those stopping by after they do the Manitou Springs Incline or after their hike, bike, run, ride, COG train on Pikes Peak.
Bottom line, if you want a great tasting treat at a reasonable price stop by the Colorado Custard Company were we believe, "dessert should not cost as much as dinner!"
