Life is a bowl of Perry’s. Visitors to Perry’s Ice Cream’s (Perry’s) Akron, N.Y.-based headquarters and processing facility are sure to spot that particular saying across signage, corporate literature and even product packaging.
To live up to that clever play on words, the company, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, still creates its ice cream using the same old-fashioned recipe and methods that founder H. Morton Perry handed down decades ago. These days, it simply is creating a heck of a lot more of it. Measured in servings, production is roughly a half-million units a day.
