Our Team

Meet the Curries. We are Vaughan, Sharon, Sasha and Ben, proud owners of New Zealand's oldest and coolest ice creamery.

Rush Munro’s has had a tradition of being locally owned by families passionate about their Ice Cream. The Curries are only the 5th Family to have been passed the scoop in 94 years.

We're delighted to be able to continue Rush Munro's rich traditions, creating products that our own family loves. We are all hands on. Our kids, Sasha and Ben work at the Gardens with the wider retail team and are self-labelled 'Ice-Cream taste specialists', never short of ideas on the next exciting flavour. As a small family owned business we are “Jacks” of all trades, with Sharon and I a busy collision of all things you could think of in running and working in an Ice Creamery. We are now experts in tripping over the obvious, bolt upright in bed moments and riding the inside rail of daily learning curves.

To help us along the way we are fortunate to have a great retail team around us making sure that visitors, past and present, add another neat Rush Munro’s memory to their list. Graham Copp has been with Rush Munro, making the Ice Cream for almost 20 years and he is still with us as the guiding influence in our factory/kitchen. We feel very privileged to be part of a bigger story in Rush Munro’s rich history.
