The popular ice cream chain Ample Hills Creamery has filed for bankruptcy. The chain has locations in New York City as well as a couple in Florida, including one at Disney’s Boardwalk at the Walt Disney World Resort. A second location, at Disney Springs, was set to open this past winter.
The bankruptcy decision was made before New York City shut down all restaurants and bars in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 and is unrelated to the pandemic. At this time all 14 locations in New York City are still open for takeout while the company navigates the bankruptcy. The company cited extreme delays in the opening of its 15,000-square-foot Red Hook factory, museum, and store as particularly detrimental to the business, according to the bankruptcy court filing.
The creamery was launched in 2010 by co-owners and married couple Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscuna and is known for its in-demand, playful flavors like Fluffernutter Fudge and “I Contain Breakfast Foods!” that regularly sell out.
The bankruptcy will allow Ample Hills to restructure and refocus as it moves forward.
