our heritage

Stax Ice Cream fosters a culture of friendship. We have a vision of not just being an ice cream shop, but a place where people can connect. Located in the busy streets of New York City, our space was designed with the intention of providing you the opportunity to take a break, and celebrate the sweet moments in life.

a focus on quality

When it comes to things we are passionate about, quality and creativity instantly come to mind. All our ice cream is made in-house in small batches so that our products are always fresh. We are highly committed to using superior ingredients and are constantly working towards creating innovative flavors. Inspired by the Asian-American community around us, our blend of flavors mimic the uniqueness of both Eastern and Western cultures.

Sophie Gao

Co-Founder

Sophie is driven, persistent, and bold. Growing up in Chinatown, she is used to the massive crowds and busy lifestyle of the city. On the occasions she wasn’t helping her parents with the family business, you could find her at ballet or hip-hop dance classes. With her experience in business and background in marketing, Sophie was born to be an entrepreneur. Being a dessert enthusiast, it is no wonder her first business idea is an artisanal ice cream shop. Her next goal is to start her own vlogging channel – so keep on the lookout for that!

Co-Founder

Being the first generation Asian-American in her family, Vida is familiar with the pressures of excelling in academics, working part-time jobs, taking care of her younger brother, all the while trying to discover her passions. A wanderer at heart, she loves traveling and exploring new places. When she’s not seeking adventure, you can find her sipping on a cup of coffee and indulging in a good read. A self-proclaimed ice cream connoisseur, it only makes sense her first business venture is related to her favorite food.
