Louisville's Comfy Cow Expanding With Distribution Center In Jeffersontown

A staple in Louisville’s sweets sector has announced it is creating a distribution center to help with its expansion.

The Comfy Cow ice cream company will lease a 6,500 square-foot space in the Regency Point Business Center in Jeffersontown that will create up to 50 new jobs and invest $2 million, according to a news release issued Thursday.

"It's incredibly exciting for us," said Co-founder Tim Koons-McGee.

Part of the company's long-term strategy includes expanding its brand in grocery stores and franchising, he said. This includes new locations in Nashville, Jeffersonville and Middletown.

The Comfy Cow hasn't changed its recipes since opening in Louisville’s Westport Village in December 2009, said Koons-McGee. The ice cream is made from scratch, while using many local ingredients—and that isn't changing, he said.

"We'll probably have more machines and more people but the recipe and the ingredients will not change," he said.

The new facility, which is expected to be in operation by early April,  will take over ice-cream production from the local retail locations.
