Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Holdings Inc, trading and commonly known as Ben & Jerry’s, is an American company that manufactures ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet.
It was founded in 1978 in Burlington, Vermont and sold in 2000 to British-Dutch conglomerate Unilever. Today it operates globally as a fully owned subsidiary of Unilever. Its present-day headquarters is in South Burlington, Vermont with its main factory in Waterbury. Vermont.
On May 5, 1978, with a $12,000 investment, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield opened an ice cream parlor in a renovated gas station in downtown Burlington, Vermont. In 1979, they marked their anniversary by holding the first “free cone day”, now an annual event at every Ben & Jerry’s store.
