Blue Bell Ice Cream returns to Arizona in 2017
BRENHAM, Texas, December 7, 2016 – Blue Bell Creameries is excited to announce it will be expanding its distribution area throughout the state of Arizona beginning March 6.
“It has always been our goal to return to Arizona, 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. “Our Arizona fans have been patient, but vocal, when it comes to requests for Blue Bell. We receive questions almost daily asking when our ice cream will be back in stores. Finally, we can give them the answer they have been waiting for.”
Blue Bell will reopen its distribution facilities located in Apache Junction, Phoenix and Tucson. “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 Arizona, Blue Bell has plans to bring its ice cream to even more cities. “We are looking forward to 2017, as it is already shaping up to be an outstanding year,” Dickson added. “Later this month we will announce the next market entry.”
