Jerry Greenfield, the Jerry of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream is coming to the area next week. On Tuesday evening he’ll be speaking over at IUS as part of the Sanders Speaker Series. And after he’s done talking? A reception, with free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream!
Jerry Greenfield, of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream will be the keynote speaker for the annual Sanders Speaker Series at 6 p.m., Feb. 21, at the Paul W. Ogle Cultural and Community Center at IU Southeast.
For years, Greenfield and his business partner Ben Cohen satisfied the country’s sweet tooth, but now he’ll share with Southern Indiana how they turned one local ice cream shop into a multimillion dollar business.
Greenfield and Cohen opened the first Ben & Jerry’s ice cream parlor in 1978 and have since used a unique business plan to combine social responsibility with a profitable business.
