Ben & Jerry's | National Ice Cream Day

National Ice Cream Day is happening this Sunday, and we thought it would be fun to scoop you up some fun facts about RIT’s very own Ben & Jerry’s shop!

  • Currently the only B&J’s in Upstate NY is located on our very own campus inside the SAU next and began serving up its delectable flavors since it’s grand opening back February 14th, 2002.

  • Every year, B&J’s chooses one day to spread the love of ice cream by giving free cones as a huge “thank you” to it’s customers. This year’s happened last April and RIT served 5,112 cones and raised $388.86 for Margaret's House.

  • RIT’s Ben & Jerry’s, although small and mainly run by students, has dozens of inclusive flavors to choose from like Gluten Free and Dairy Free options.

  • In 2014 during Brick City Homecoming & Family Weekend, the very own Jerry Greenfield came to visit campus and talk in the Saunders College Gasser Lecture Series.

  • Every Friday this summer you can enjoy 50% off your purchase! Hours are 11:00am - 2:00pm. Perfect for an afternoon snack.

For 15 years we’ve had easy access to the finest quality all natural ice cream in the U.S. Take a look at what Ben & Jerry’s looked like 7 years ago in 2010! Have you had any ice cream yet? What’s your favorite flavor?
