About Pecan Jacks
Ice Creamery & Candy Kitchen

It’s the first question from the backseat as soon as the kids see the first signs that they’re actually at the beach. They’re now officially on vacation. And, here comes the question!

Let’s Get Started!

    “What night are we going to Pecan Jacks for ice cream?”

    This is what our customers say! Right after we see their huge smiles, just after walking in the door, they tell us they’ve talked about Pecan Jacks since leaving home for vacation!

    Everyone knows that at Pecan Jacks, we love to offer our delicious samples! Our fans get to try as much of our chocolate candy treats and our rich and creamy ice cream as they want before typically settling on their favorite from their last visit!

    93% of our customers say they’ll visit Pecan Jacks again and would refer a friend!
    72% of our customers say they mention Pecan Jacks by name when discussing things they’ll do while on vacation!
    58% of our customers say they come back for ice cream. 52% of our customers say they come back for our chocolate candies. 79% of our customers say they come back for both!

    Yes, Pecan Jacks is a tradition! And, tradition means repeat customers!

    Is Pecan Jacks an Ice Cream Shop or a Candy Shop? Yes!

    From pralines & cream and Baileys salted caramel to fan favorite banana pudding, our homemade ice creams, each rich and creamy scoop, are made onsite in the Pecan Jacks Kitchen. And, all that chocolate goodness our fans talk about, that’s made in our kitchen too!

    Never made ice cream before?

    That’s ok, not only are we great at making the world’s best ice cream (ok, we haven’t checked with everyone in the world, but you’ll see!), we’re great at teaching franchise owners how to make it.

    We’re pretty sure you’re not an experienced candy maker either, right?

    Not to worry. Our southern ice cream and candy kitchen is filled with amazing chocolates, pralines, brittles, candies, and homemade sauces. We’ll teach you to make them all!

    We’re an ice cream shop! We’re a candy shop! That’s why Pecan Jacks fans love us and keep coming back!

    A Favorite Secret Ingredient

    In 2009 when Tim Wyatt, our co-founder who started Pecan Jacks along with his wife Ronnie, first started tinkering with our now-famous delicious recipes, he knew he was on to something when he decided that bourbon-infused ice cream sounded pretty tasty!

    And. It. Was. He loved it! And, then he tested rum. And, then he tested amaretto! And, then he tried the same with his chocolate candy recipes, passed down from his grandmother by the way.

    Yep, he loved what he was creating!

    We know what you might be thinking, so we’ll answer that question now. No, not all of our ice cream and chocolates are infused with spirits.

    Now that that’s out of the way, check out some of the best-sellers from our popular adult menu:

    Bourbon-Infused Ice Cream

    Caribbean Rum Pralines

    Dark Chocolate Grand Marnier Pecans

    Limoncello Caramel Sauce

    Now, we’ll answer the second question we know you’re about to ask.

    Yes, just like Pecan Jacks fans who visit our stores (21 years or older of course), you’ll get to sample these amazing spirit-filled ice creams and candies when you come for your franchise Discovery Day!

    How Pecan Jacks Got Its Start

    It was 2009. As the co-owners of a successful commercial printing company that shipped millions of business cards to clients across the United States, Ronnie Wyatt and her husband Tim decided it was time to turn their passion into a business!

    For three years Ronnie worked on that special touch that would eventually lead to the selling of the printing business and the opening of a Florida-panhandle ice cream and candy shop, and the beginning of Pecan Jacks ice cream and candy store franchise.

    That special touch? As you may have guessed, it was bourbon. And, rum. Sometimes Amaretto.

    The Pecan Jacks ice cream and candy store franchise opened its first location in the popular tourist destination town of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, on the famous 30A strip. A second location was opened just down the beach in Destin, Florida.

    Residents of Santa Rosa Beach and Destin and the thousands of beach go-ers who visit these communities are sure glad they did!
