Create the most delicious career
Yes, there are seriously people who spend their workdays thinking about ice cream. We know, because we’re the ones who are lucky enough to do it! Though it isn’t luck that has sustained Perry’s Ice Cream for over 100 years — behind every scoop of Panda Paws is a passionate team bringing creative ideas to the table. See what makes working with us just another day in Perry-dise!
Our “good stuff” starts with great people
Over 100 years ago, our founder, H. Morton Perry, created his first batch of ice cream with his golden rule: “Make sure you put in enough of the good stuff.” While a lot has changed since that first batch of ice cream, we have held on to the belief that having enough of the good stuff is really important. With over 400 employees across New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio (and growing!), we know that our “good stuff” starts with our great people, even before the slow-cooked process begins. From production, distribution, sales, transportation, customer service, and everything in between, every team member at Perry’s contributes to our “Good Stuff.” And we know that we wouldn’t be where we are today without our passionate people behind us.
