I bet they never would have thought back in 1978 when these two guys were just getting into the ice cream business that so many people would be talking about them and enjoying them as much as they are now but one things for sure, we bet their happy about it!
Ben & Jerry’s has truly become an iconic brand the world over. It’s crazy to think that these guys started out with a $12,000 investment and turned it into the most popular ice cream on the planet… okay in our opinion anyway!
We love the transparency of their website and the the historic timeline in the “About” section because it doesn’t skip over the lean years and the amount of time and energy put in by the founders to achieve success. They also share their values and truly stick up for what they stand for as a company.
Fun fact which you may or may not know is that they host “Free Cone Day” but you’ll need to keep an eye on their website and social channels for the announcements.
If you’ve always had a passion for ice cream and wanted to open a shop of your own they offer franchise opportunities! The thought crossed our minds but we’re pretty sure we’d “take our work home with us” and that would likely eat into out profits so we’ll leave the scooping to everyone else and simply continue to enjoy visiting our local Ben & Jerry’s shop and picking up pints at the grocery store!
