Why are we called Ape?
Although many think so, the name has nothing to do with monkeys. Ape is the name of the Italian three-wheeled vehicle, built by Piaggio starting in 1948, which we brought to Helsinki to sell ice cream in perfect Italian style.
Ape in Italian means bee, that's why you can recognize a nice little bee in our logo.
We have brought Italian ice cream cars to Helsinki, where we serve quality ice cream and espresso products since 2017. We have a fleet of five Ape cars in Helsinki city area, you can find our daily locations in Instagram Stories!
Our company mixes Italian and Finnish moods into a tasty blend called Ape Gelato.
