Currently Rex Howard (Rollie's real name) St. John owns and operates the Dairy Dream of Albany Inc. He and Angie (his x spouse) operated the business 1991 to 2011. Rex Jay St. John operated the business from 1973- 1991. The original proprietors were Rollie and Lavon St. John. They began the ice cream enterprise in 1953.

Since 1953, the claim to fame has been and always will be the "homemade" sloppy joes and the "homemade" fruit toppings. The toppings are enjoyed in shakes, sundaes, smoothies, drinks, and blitzes.

Being a 3rd generation operator, Rex Howard is excited to begin a new era in the Dairy Dream legacy. Rex says, "Someday, maybe one of my 3 boys will carry the torch for a 4th generation, taking the business forward to the next level!"

Rex obtained his bachelor's degree in 1986. He is a graduate of the Ball State Entrepreneurship program. At the undergraduate level, Ball State is currently ranked in the top 10 in the country! Annually, Rex attends Ice Cream and Food shows in Michigan and Ohio.

In addition to serving ice cream and sandwiches, we also go on the road with shaved ice equipment and a concession trailer. Both of these enterprises are rentable.
