OUTdrive Episode 145 with Katie Imler
Ice Cream Factory owners Katie and Shannon Imler love to make people happy, and they do it with ice cream. What started out as a scoop shop in Eldon serving the ice cream they make by hand has turned into a bustling operation selling 30-plus flavors in over 2,000 retail stores in the central United States. You can still enjoy Imler’s ice cream in the scoop shops but you can also now find it in grocery stores, coffee shops, bakeries and more. Today, we are pleased to welcome Katie Imler, co-owner and marketing manager for Ice Cream Factory.
