Buffalo Behind the Scenes: Perry’s Ice Cream

For years Perry’s had operated in a small plant in Akron but by the 1970s had long since outgrown it. The company bought an 8.5-acre piece of property in Akron and built a new storage freezer and distribution facility, which opened in 1971. By this time, Thomas Perry had been joined by his brother Dale. Thomas became operations manager while Dale handled administration and sales. By the late 1970s, due to the company’s strong growth, they found themselves stretched too thin, and began establishing a corporate structure that would grow and remain in place into the new century.

In the early to mid-1980s Perry’s enjoyed strong growth, spurred by increasing supermarket sales. To keep pace with demand, the company moved into a new 6-million-gallon-per-year facility in 1982, a significant improvement over the previous 2-million-gallon capacity. In that same year, Perry’s supported its novelty business by purchasing a Vitaline machine capable of producing six individual stick products simultaneously. A larger model was added five years later, boasting a capacity of eight “drops.”
