Ben and Jerry's May Further Expand Through the Boston Area

A Vermont-based ice cream company that currently has several shops in the Greater Boston area may be bringing more outlets to the region.

The Boston Business Journal is reporting that Ben and Jerry's is planning to add more franchise locations to major markets and popular tourist spots across the United States, and the Metro Boston area is included in these plans. According to the article, franchise development manager Eric Thomas stated via an email that the region has been "a strong market" for the company, and that they want to "continue to be open to growth in greater Boston with both current and new franchisees." No specific locations have been mentioned as of yet, nor is there a timeline at this point.

Existing locations of Ben and Jerry's can be found on Newbury Street in Boston's Back Bay, Park Plaza in downtown Boston, Harvard Square in Cambridge, Braintree, and Natick, along with a kiosk by the New England Aquarium on the waterfront. The website for Ben and Jerry's (which is headquartered in Waterbury, VT) can be found at
