Upstate N.Y.’s #1 Ice Cream Available at New Wegmans Raleigh, N.C. Location Opening Sept. 29 

Perry’s Ice Cream Company, Inc., a Great Lakes regional brand headquartered in Western New York, is expanding into Wegmans new Raleigh, North Carolina location, opening September 29.   A variety of 20 Perry’s family size flavors will be available including classic favorites such as Panda Paws®, All American, and Mint-Ting-A-Ling.

Perry’s leadership is taking a focused look at further southeast expansion opportunities while continuing to grow in the mid-west. In May, the brand publicized its investment into Ohio and a new professional sports partnership and co-branded flavor will be announced later this month.
