Ample Hills to Open an Ice Cream Factory

16-ample-hills-gowanus-1.w245.h368Ample Hills Creamery is a four year old Brooklyn scoop-shop in Brooklyn, known for their throwback flavors. Since opening their first stores in Prospect Heights, they have expanded to locations in Gowanus and stalls in Brooklyn Bridge Park, Gotham West Market, and Jacob Riis Park. Ample Hills has acquired $4 million in funding from venture-investment firms including Brooklyn Brewery co-founder Tom Potter and the founders of Seamless.

With their new funds, Ample Hills will be opening a 15,000 square foot factory, which will be used to make all of their ice cream except for a single location specific flavor that differs at every store. They will also be using the funds to hire more management team and expand both wholesale pint distributions and direct shipments to consumers.

Co-Owners Brian Smith and wife Jackie Cuscuna have expressed their intents to expand their brand slowly for quality driven growth. They plan to expand within New York before branching out to other parts of the country.
