Blue Bell Ice Cream returns to Wilmington and surrounding cities in 2017
BRENHAM, Texas, December 7, 2016 – Blue Bell Creameries is excited to announce it will be expanding its distribution area to include Wilmington and the surrounding cities beginning March 6. (Cities listed below.)
“It has always been our goal to return to the Wilmington area, and we believe that we are in a great position to expand our sales territory next year,” said Ricky Dickson, vice president of sales and marketing for Blue Bell. “In September, we began selling our ice cream in the central portion of North Carolina and had a very good response. With the addition of Wilmington, Blue Bell will now be available across most of the state.”
Blue Bell will reopen its distribution facility located in Wilmington. “We have started hiring personnel and will continue to add more as needed over the next few months,” Dickson said.
No store locations have been released at this time, but ice cream fans can expect to find Blue Bell at most major supermarkets and drug stores when it returns to the area.
In addition to Wilmington, Blue Bell Ice Cream will return throughout the state of Arizona in March. “We are looking forward to 2017, as it is already shaping up to be an outstanding year,” Dickson added. “We really appreciate the patience of our customers.”
