Turkey Hill LLC, a manufacturer and distributor of branded ice cream and refrigerated drinks, announced that it has acquired an ice cream and novelty production facility in Searcy, Arkansas from Yarnell Ice Cream, LLC, a subsidiary of Schulze & Burch Biscuit Company.
The newly acquired 100,000 square foot production facility is SQF-certified and manufactures high-quality ice cream and frozen novelty products across various sizes and formats. The addition of this facility further expands Turkey Hill’s production capacity, capabilities, and geographic reach.
Turkey Hill’s existing footprint already includes one of the largest production facilities of ice cream and refrigerated drinks in the country – a state-of-the-art facility located in Conestoga, Penn., which is powered by 100% renewable energy and situated on 72+ acres along the Susquehanna River. Within its flagship facility, Turkey Hill is also executing on its previously announced investment plan, which includes capacity and personnel expansion, investments across existing production lines, and facility enhancements to support its associates.
Concurrent with the transaction, Turkey Hill has entered into a co-manufacturing agreement whereby it will continue to produce ice cream for the Yarnell’s brand, which will be retained by Schulze & Burch Biscuit Company.
