Killer Creamery announced that its sugar-free ice cream sandwiches now are available in more than 2,000 retail doors owned by Albertsons Companies. These include such stores as VONS, Safeway, ACME and Jewel-Osco.
The increase in distribution comes after the Boise, Idaho-based creamery says it posted impressive sales velocities in test regions last summer. It points out that its sugar-free ice cream sandwich was the fastest selling better-for-you novelty product in the category.
Founder and owner Louis Armstrong notes, “We are so thankful for the opportunity to continue to grow with Albertsons Co. They have been a great retail partner for us since we started this business in 2016. I look forward to continuing to work with them on a national level and support their business any way we can.”
The positive news follows a great week at Killer Creamery as the company and the board also announced a new partnership with Idaho Milk Products in Twin Falls, Idaho, enabling the sugar-free and gluten free company to better control their supply chain while bringing a whole new level of stability to its growing ice cream business.
"Killer Creamery, partnering with some of the largest dairymen in the state, becomes an interesting relationship for a startup," Armstrong added.
Killer Creamery sugar-free ice cream sandwiches are available for a suggested retail price of $5.99 to $6.99 per 6-pack.
