BLUE BELL ICE CREAM RE­TURN­ING TO DEN­VER

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS - By Em­i­lie Rusch

Blue Bell is set to make its long-awaited come­back to the Den­ver area. The Tex­as­based ice cream maker said Mon­day that it plans to re­sume distri­bu­tion in metro Den­ver and Cheyenne on March 27.

“It has al­ways been our goal to re­turn to Den­ver, and we be­lieve that we are in a great po­si­tion to ex­pand our sales ter­ri­tory next year,” vice pres­i­dent of sales and mar­ket­ing Ricky Dick­son said. “We will have an out­stand­ing va­ri­ety of fla­vors and prod­ucts to of­fer our fans in Colorado.”

It will be the first time Blue Bell prod­ucts have been avail­able in the Den­ver metro area since the com­pany pulled all of its prod­ucts from store shelves na­tion­wide in April 2015 amid a lis­te­ria out­break that killed three peo­ple.

Hir­ing has al­ready be­gun to re-open Blue Bell’s distri­bu­tion fa­cil­ity in Cen­ten­nial, Dick­son said.
