Did you know that we do ice cream catering, too??

Moving from savory eats to sweet treats

Brothers Nick and Chris O’Sullivan founded Nuggs Ice Cream in 2014. The O’Sullivan brothers opened their 1st concept, Brothers BBQ, in February 1998. Brothers BBQ has now gone on to open 5 more locations in Colorado’s Front Range area.

While living in Denver’s Park Hill and Mayfair neighborhood for the 14 years, brother Chris noticed one slight problem with his neighborhood… there were no local ice cream shops! With that in mind and a severe hankering for some good old-fashioned hand made local cream, he spotted the perfect location! After recruiting brother Nick (again), the brothers finally got college degrees! Well sort of. Nick said, “We went to Ice Cream University in Florida.”

Expanding the family business


With diplomas in hand, the brothers bought their ice cream machine and began experimenting at the Brothers BBQ headquarters while the new Nuggs Ice Cream location was being renovated. After a few months of developing flavors, the ice cream recipes started taking shape and being enjoyed by family, friends and the Brothers BBQ team. New recipes are always being developed and perfected, as Nuggs Ice Cream prides itself in serving fresh, seasonal flavors.
