BUFFALO, N.Y. — Wegmans Food Markets has doubled down on its longstanding partnership with Perry’s Ice Cream to the tune of $3 million.
The grocery retailer is investing $3 million into the Akron-based ice cream maker’s planned $18 million expansion project. Perry’s will add 20,000 square feet to its 120,000-square-foot facility to produce ice cream bars on a stick, a “fast-growing segment” of the industry right now.
Wegmans contributed to the project for “future benefits related to a new product offering and preferential production scheduling and pricing,” according to plans submitted to the Buffalo and Erie County Regional Development Corporation.
