Free Cone Day Is Here!
Ben & Jerry’s of Davidson Serves Fans Fun Flavors and Free Ice Cream
Davidson, NC—3/15/2018 — Ben & Jerry’s fans can mark April 10th on their calendars as the 2018 Ben & Jerry-est day of the year: Free Cone Day! For the past 40 years, Ben & Jerry’s has opened Scoop Shops to dish out free ice cream to fans, thanking them for being so uniquely awesome. The tradition has continued to grow, beginning in the small state of Vermont, and now spanning across the globe. Fans are invited to Ben & Jerry’s of Davidson, located at 202 South Main Street, Davidson, from noon to 8 pm, to join in on the company’s long-time tradition of thanking fans for their commitment and ongoing support.
The company was founded on the idea that business has not just the opportunity, but also the responsibility to give back to the community. Free Cone Day is a long standing tradition when it comes to benevolent acts, and as Jerry said, “If it’s not fun, why do it?” The annual anniversary merges the two founding principles and demonstrates that giving back to the community is just as sweet as free ice cream.
“We love getting involved with and giving back to our communities. It’s amazing what we can do together over shared values and several scoops of ice cream,” said Karen Toney, Scoop shop manager, Ben & Jerry’s of Davidson. Ben & Jerry’s advocates for social causes like climate justice, and makes their ice cream in the best way possible, which includes sourcing Fairtrade and non-GMO ingredients.
Ben & Jerry’s continues to deliver on the chunky and funky flavors fans have grown to love and expect. In addition to dishing out the chunks and swirls, Ben & Jerry’s of Davidson will partner with Davidson LifeLine to spread the word about Supporting suicide prevention and mental health awareness within the community.
So the biggest question is, which flavor will you have on Free Cone Day?
