Anthony Sobotik

Co-Founder & Chef, Lick Honest Ice Creams

As a fifth-generation Texan, Anthony loves sharing the flavors of Texas through his ice creams. Anthony was a professional caterer and baker in New York and Ohio for seven years before launching Lick Honest Ice Creams. He spends the bulk of his days developing recipes and sourcing ingredients from local foragers, farmers and food artisans to create Lick’s delicious and unique flavors.

Anthony and his partner Chad Palmatier opened Lick Honest Ice Creams’ flagship location in Austin in 2011. In August 2014, they opened a location in San Antonio at The Pearl, and opened their third location in North Austin in July 2015. They began shipping pints nationally in December 2015, and relocated their original location to Lamar Union in March 2016. Their fourth location will open at Mueller in East Austin in Spring of 2017.

Since opening, Lick Honest Ice Creams has received praise from several local and national publications, including The New York Times, The Cooking Channel, The Food Network, GQ, Thrillist, Southern Living, Food & Wine, and Travel + Leisure.
