Companies doing good: Lovin' Scoopful

On July 5th, 2010 The Washington Times posted a wonderful write up about the good works being done by Lovin' Scoopful. Here are some excerpts and we are happy to provide you with a link to the whole article.

"Silver Spring, MD (7/5/10) - Sometimes it seems that we live in a world of corporate greed- a society full of companies that are looking out for the bottom line and its executives and not much more. Sometimes you will find corporations that give back a little. Occasionally you find companies who give back a lot... Lovin' Scoopful is one company that marries a for-profit business model with a generous philanthropic strategy. I am particularly drawn to this ice cream company because, well, ice cream, and also because they give 25% of their post-tax profits directly to Special Olympics, which is an incredible organization doing a tremendous amount of good for people with disabilities.

...I recently had a chance to ask CEO [Dan] Samson some questions about the company and how it came about. I was delighted to hear that when [Dan] Samson and Tim Shriver were trying to find a business to start together, the idea of a cause came first.

...It is a wonderful surprise to find a company that doesn't just donate to a charity, but was founded for that specific purpose. I would love to see more companies follow Lovin' Scoopful's lead and partner with worthwhile charities to improve lives. "

    What stores in the Seattle area sell your ice cream? I entered a few zip codes and nothing came up, I don't want to waste time entering dozens of zip codes one-by-one, the only option your website currently offers.
