About Blue Bell Creameries
Blue Bell Creameries
Blue Bell Creameries, founded in Brenham, Texas, began its journey as a butter producer in the early 20th century, utilizing excess cream from local farmers. Over time, the company diversified its offerings, venturing into the production of ice cream and delivering it to neighbors via horse-drawn wagons. In 1930, it adopted the name Blue Bell Creameries, inspired by the Texas bluebell wildflower, and shifted its primary focus to ice cream production.
Today, Blue Bell Creameries boasts a diverse product lineup, including Blue Bell Ice Cream, No Sugar Added Ice Cream, Sherbet, and frozen snacks, all distributed through a direct store delivery program. This approach, unique in the industry, ensures that Blue Bell products are handled exclusively by company employees from production to store shelves, preserving the utmost quality and freshness.
Despite a deliberate and steady growth strategy, it wasn't until the 1980s that Blue Bell expanded beyond Texas, yet it has emerged as one of the nation's top-selling ice cream brands, available in 23 states. Throughout its journey, Blue Bell Creameries has remained unwavering in its commitment to maintaining unparalleled quality standards, leading many to herald it as the finest ice cream in the country.
