“I am thrilled to be joining Yuengling’s and work with Rob to move the company forward,” commented Green. “While there was progress behind the scenes with the public company, I know Rob was frustrated that the Yuengling’s Ice Cream relaunch was not advancing as quickly as he would have liked. Rob and I have many ideas and a long “to do” list, but one of our highest priorities is to get Yuengling’s Ice Cream back on retailers’ shelves and with food service providers. We also would like to consider some small acquisitions and/or licensing deals, but that will depend largely on what opportunities are available.” Bohorad, Yuengling’s current President and CEO, added, “I have known Chuck for many years and have had the opportunity to work closely with him since February. Words cannot express how excited I am to work together on advancing Yuengling’s Ice Cream.”
About Yuengling’s Ice Cream
Yuengling’s Ice Cream was founded by American businessman Frank D. Yuengling in 1920 to help support the family brewery during Prohibition, which lasted from January, 1920 to December, 1933. Spun off as a separate company from the brewery in 1935, Yuengling's maintained a strong tradition of making exceptional gourmet ice cream products in central Pennsylvania. The fan-favorite brand advanced its legacy and its renowned dairy quality by using locally sourced dairy ingredients that contain no added hormones. The company discontinued production in 1985 when no family successor emerged. In 2014, David Yuengling, Frank’s great grandson, and Robert Bohorad revived the brand and an American classic was re-born. The Yuengling's Ice Cream Corporation, as it has been since 1935, is a separately owned and operated company from D. G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. Brewery.
