Hersheys Ice Cream

Sales Manager

Columbia, SC

The Hershey Creamery Company was founded in 1894 by Jacob Hershey and his four brothers: Isaac, Paris, Ephraim and Eli Hershey (no relation to Milton S. Hershey of the Hershey Company). 

Since 1894, Hershey's® has strived to "guarantee quality products, provide excellent service, establish competitive prices and provide a true value to the customer." Hershey's® Ice Cream makes all of our mixes from fresh, wholesome ingredients. Fresh cream and fresh condensed milk is delivered to our plant on a daily basis!

To ensure our quality, we use pure vanilla extract, and the highest quality of cocoa available anywhere. Our fruit flavors are made from hand-picked, fresh-frozen fruits. We use high grades of almonds, pecans and walnuts. We are also one of the few manufacturers that roasts nuts in our own plant and we guarantee freshness and quality! 

That's why it's premium. That's why it's real! And that's why you get "Real Ingredients. Real Ice Cream. Real Smiles." with every ice cream product we make.
