It will also add ice cream flavor experts to the company, including Joe Schmitz, a former DICEYE ice cream manager.”DICEY’s Ice Cream Bar will now have the best and most experienced ice cream flavors in the country,” said CEO Eric Jaffe in a statement.
“This acquisition will add more flavor diversity and more creative options for consumers.”
