OUR STORY

Mochidoki is a nationally renowned, New York-based, mochi ice cream company, best-know for our imaginative and refined Japanese-inspired desserts. Using only the highest-quality ingredients, Mochidoki offers elegant flavors such as Red Bean with chopped azuki red beans; fan-favorites like Salted Caramel with cracked caramel candy; classics like Ube and Matcha Made with organic, premium matcha, and more.

After learning alongside Japanese pastry chefs, dairy scientists and food technologists, and diligently researching the science and history of the hand-held treat, Ken Gordon launched Mochidoki in 2015 with co-founder Christopher Wong as a wholesale brand serving the foodservice industry.

Our ingredient-driven ethos and whimsical creations earned us a loyal following, and we soon became the preferred mochi ice cream provider to top restaurant and hospitality groups nationwide, from Nobu and Tao to Wynn Resorts and Blue Ribbon.

Building on this success, we opened the doors to our one-of-a-kind online shop in 2019, delivering a dynamic selection of signature flavors and seasonal offerings to homes across the US — guaranteed to be delivered fresh, never melted. 

In spring 2020, we debuted our first brick-and-mortar location. The shop offers a new kind of mochi ice cream experience centered around exploration and surprise.

Watch here for more exciting updates as we continue to spread the joy of mochi and imagination in every bite!

OUR CORE VALUES

RESPECT THE FLAVORS

Our recipe for success is simple: select the best ingredients, explore their stories and let the flavors shine. It’s the same with our people — every individual matters, along with their unique beliefs, abilities and backgrounds. Curiosity drives us to keep learning about each other, our planet and all the possibilities ahead.

BE SWEET AND CHILL

We make joy in small batches and kindness is free, so why not share it? For us, it’s about being chill and welcoming, having fun and not taking ourselves too seriously.  At the end of the day, we make scrumptious ice cream wrapped in mouth-watering mochi … a  sweet combination that makes everyone happy.

MIX WELL

When you mix talented people with creative ideas, you’ve got the start of something delicious. Getting the blend just right --right down to the last detail --  is our speciality. With a dash of inspiration and an abundance of collaboration, we’ve created a space that’s open-minded and respectful.

REACH FOR THE BEST

In our pursuit of quality, excellence and great taste, we never take shortcuts. Whether we’re sourcing new ingredients, making the mochi or waiting on a customer, we strive to be the best. With an unwavering sense of urgency, we serve up fresh, fulfilling experiences that truly set us apart.

SERVE IMAGINATION IN EVERY BITE

From unexpected flavors to the way we embrace each new challenge, imagination is at the heart of our business. We always innovate and put our best foot forward, looking for new ways to inspire our customers and our team. Along the way, we encourage exploration and discovery … dreams and aspirations are well nourished here!
