BUSINESS EXCHANGE LUNCHEON

Posted by bclark@cpmedia.com on June 25, 2016

Join us on November 9 for another leg of the Trailblazer Series. This luncheon features Luconda Dager with Velvet Ice Cream.

Luconda, president of Velvet Ice Cream, is the fourth generation of her family to lead the Utica-based ice cream manufacturer since its beginning in 1914.

The company has 125 employees and distributes more than 5 million gallons of ice cream each year.  It recently expanded distribution into Indiana and Kentucky.
Ms. Dager will share some unknown Velvet Ice Cream facts with us like, “we don’t think consumers realize that what they are buying on the grocery shelf was made fresh 7 days ago” and “we are family-oriented.  It’s the Velvet family first.  That’s our motto.”

This luncheon is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Airport Embassy Suites by Hilton, 2886 Airport Drive . Be sure to register now!
