Product Comes on the Heels of Crumbs Bake Shop Restructure
KEYPORT, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2014) -
The new Crumbs Bake Shop Ice Cream products are part of the anticipated brand restructuring of the popular national bakery chain, Crumbs Bake Shop, which closed its doors this past July. Plans are to reopen Crumbs stores under new direction by Lemonis and Fischer Enterprises and re-brand the bake shop to offer a wider variety of dessert products.
"Mr. Green Tea introducing the new Crumbs Bake Shop Ice Cream product line is the first of many plans to expand the Crumbs offerings beyond cupcakes," said Lemonis. "Broadening the Crumbs brand into a sweets and snacks shop allows us to create new ways for our customers to enjoy timeless favorites."
Mr. Green Tea will distribute the new Crumbs Bake Shop Ice Cream in individual servings and pints sold in grocery and convenience stores across the country. The Crumbs Ice Cream line will feature popular Crumbs Cupcake flavors such as Red Velvet, Double Devil's Food Cake and Apple Cobbler as part of a continuously growing selection of unique flavors.
"We're excited to offer our guests a mix of the Crumbs Bake Shop flavors incorporated into our premium ice cream products," said Rich Emanuele, President of Mr. Green Tea. "This will be a hit for cupcake and ice cream lovers across the country."
Lemonis initially partnered with the family-run Mr. Green Tea Ice Cream Company on the hit CNBC reality series, The Profit, where Lemonis stepped in to assist with the expansion of their business facility and product offering. This fall, an update episode of The Profit will air highlighting the success and growth of Mr. Green Tea since the collaboration began in 2013.
Mr. Green Tea is a premium ice cream company specializing in exotic flavors typically only available at high-end restaurants, including Green Tea, Red Bean, Ginger and Chai Latte. Founded in 1968, the company has been manufacturing and distributing ice cream made from the highest quality natural ingredients. Today, the company has grown to be an industry leader with products served in thousands of fine restaurants and sold in popular grocery stores across the country.
