Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Co-founder Visits JCC

Posted: Updated:

Jefferson Community College had a very 'sweet' presentation Wednesday morning.

Jerry Greenfield, one half of the duo behind Ben & Jerry's, was the keynote speaker at the college's Leadership and Business Symposium.

Greenfield talked to a full house about how he and co-founder Ben Cohen started the popular ice cream business and what he has learned over the years.

He wants people to know that you can focus on your community and still have a profitable business.

"When we try to combine social concerns with how we source ingredients or how we sell ice cream, it actually makes things better for the business part as well," he said.

Greenfield's favorite flavor is AmeriCone Dream.
