In 1920 Edwin ‘Ted’ Street, with the help of his wife and brother, laid the foundations for what would ultimately become Australia’s biggest and best-known ice cream manufacturer. Streets ice cream was originally made in the back shed by Ted, at his home in Corrimal NSW.
He sold his ice creams to neighbours along with sweets, cakes and lemonade. Word spread, and soon Ted used a cart, then a one-horsepower motorbike to sell Streets ice cream.
Popularity continued to grow and today Streets ice cream is sold throughout Australia and New Zealand with well known brands such as Magnum, Paddle Pop and Blue Ribbon.
