A Rich History In 1866, as America recovered from the Civil War, William A. Breyer of Philadelphia hand-cranked his first gallon of ice cream. Breyer opened his first retail ice cream shop in 1882. In 1896, 30 years after Breyer made his first gallon of ice cream, his family set up its first wholesale manufacturing plant. Breyer’s son, Henry, incorporated the business in 1908 and continued his father’s commitment to produce high quality ice cream. In 1993, Unilever bought Breyers® Ice Creamfrom Kraft and made it part of the Gold Bond-Good Humor Ice Cream Company in Green Bay, Wisconsin, renaming the company the Good Humor-Breyers® Ice Cream Company. Today, Unilever continues to own and manage Breyers® and is based in Englewood Cliffs, N.J.
Breyer’s continues to support Habitat for Humanity at some of our local events, such as our quarterly parking lot sales. We are blessed to have them share their delicious ice cream with our customers and staff!
