“The sweetest things in life.” That’s what The STIL—Boise’s award-winning ice cream shop—stands for. It’s a reflection of the approach the owners, Kasey Allen and Dan Sell, take to running their business. They opened The STIL’s doors three years ago and haven’t looked back since. The company has grown to two storefronts, and its products are stocked at 18 grocery stores and sold by several coffee shops and restaurants across the Valley. It doesn’t come as a surprise though, given they make all their ice cream on-site and offer a wide variety of options, from oat milk-based to alcohol-infused.

Of course, “the sweetest things in life” means more than custom ice cream flavors to Kasey and Dan. It’s a mantra that extends past their business and defines their commitment to participating with charitable organizations in their community. Because to give back is, in fact, pretty sweet.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, they managed to quickly pivot The STIL’s operations to stay open. Through window service, deliveries and the rallying cry of the people of Boise to buy local, The STIL is doing more than surviving.

Kasey and Dan were working with Columbia Bank on expansion plans for their storefronts when they found out about the Pass It on Project. To them, it’s the perfect opportunity to support the community that has made such an effort to support them during these hard times. While Halloween may be a little different this year, the STIL wants to provide children with some semblance of normalcy. So with Columbia Bank paying the bill, The STIL is partnering with the Boise Fire Department to provide an ice cream trick-or-treat to the Boys and Girls Club of Ada County.
