Sweet Ritual is a thriving vegan ice cream shop based in Austin, Texas that hopes to inspire other dairy-free entrepreneurs with its 'Cool School.'

Cool School takes the form of a week-long intensive program that teaches those with a desire to create sweet cruelty-free treats some of the basics of ice cream-making, developing recipes and running a business. As an added treat, each day, there's an hour lunch break that gives students a taste of offerings from Austin's local vegan restaurant scene.

Some of the graduates of Sweet Ritual's Cool School have gone on to open businesses like Nice Vice and Like No Udder. As more consumers look for plant-based dessert options, it's becoming crucial for even the biggest food manufacturers to stay competitive by creating vegan desserts.
