Blue Bell expanding its reach in North Carolina

Blue Bell Creameries, which recently undertook a major expansion of its Brenham plant, has announced plans to build two new distribution centers in North Carolina.

The company began selling its popular ice cream in the Raleigh/Durham area in March, and sales have been brisker than anticipated.

"The reception from consumers in the area has certainly been beyond our expectations," company spokesman Bill Weiss said from his Brenham office.

To keep up with demand, the company is temporarily expanding its leased distribution space in the Raleigh/Durham area, Weiss said.

3. I live in Brenham where it is made.

I also posted this story in the Texas Group. It's the second story I posted this month about Blue Bell. Here is the other thread--it even has Belle the singing cow! I hope that you enjoy their new flavors.
