Bubbies Homemade Ice Cream & Desserts has opened a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Phoenix that greatly increases the production capabilities for its popular Mochi Ice Cream.
The Phoenix facility joins Bubbies other manufacturing operation in Aiea, Hawaii. With ongoing success and demand in the U.S. and internationally, Bubbies needed greater production capacity and decided that a mainland location in Phoenix was the best fit for the company.
The Phoenix facility, a multi-million dollar investment by Bubbies, adds dozens of jobs to the region. Greater Phoenix is also home to a majority of Bubbies’ leadership and executive team.
Bubbies was founded in Hawaii in 1985 by ice cream pioneer Keith Robbins. The company has since grown into the leading manufacturer of premium Mochi Ice Cream in the U.S. with a significant international footprint.
“Not only is our new Phoenix facility state-of-the-art, it gives us strategic distribution capacity from the mainland,” said Rick Schaffer, Chief Executive Officer of Bubbies Ice Cream. “Our new manufacturing facility is a game changer for us and for the industry.”
The facility will help Bubbies meet growing consumer demand, and support its rapidly expanding distribution network of specialty, independent and national grocery chains such as Whole Foods Market, Kroger and select Safeway locations.
Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream, with 100 calories or less per serving, is more rich and flavorful than other mochi desserts, due to the high quality ingredients and proprietary recipe. Bubbies is gluten-free (certified by the Celiac Support Organization), Kosher and is produced without ingredients genetically modified through the use of modern biotechnology.
