If an on-demand, in-home ice cream machine sounds like it comes from the mind of an ambitious child, you're not too far off the mark. It was just a few years ago that Matthew Fonte and his daughters were writing in “invention journals” instead of reading traditional bedtime stories — that routine had become boring, Fonte said — when they came up with the idea for a machine that could create flash-frozen ice cream in under two minutes, and with minimal effort on the user's part. In 2018, Fonte turned his daughters' dreams into reality when he founded ColdSnap, a Billerica-based startup that makes a Keurig-style machine for ice cream.
