Calling all Missoula ice cream lovers! Big Dipper is getting ready for our favorite time of year - summer - and we are looking for some new team members! If you consider yourself an optimist and a hard worker seeking a job in a fast paced (and sweet) environment please find our application online at bigdippericecream.com or stop in the shop! We are looking to fill several scooping and waffle cone making positions on mostly nights and weekends but with potential for other shifts as well. We look forward to meeting you!
St. Patrick’s day is right around the corner. 🍀 We’re ready for the holiday and now serving our St. Patrick’s day specials! We have Mint Chip, Irish Cream and Chocolate Guinness. These flavors will go fast so make sure to stop by in the next couple of days to enjoy them!

We like to shake things up and get a little crazy with flavors and toppings. Here’s a shake made with Coconut ice cream, Heath pieces and @poshchocolat salted caramel sauce. #ohboy! Tell us what crazy combos you like!
