Blue Bell began in 1907 as Brenham Creamery Company, a company founded to produce butter from the extra cream brought in by area farmers around Brenham, Texas. It was years later that the company began producing ice cream and delivering to neighbors by horse and wagon. Blue Bell still distributes today by delivering orders directly to the retail stores.
In 1930, Brenham Creamery Company changed its name to Blue Bell in honor of the native Texas wildflower bluebell. Blue Bell is available in all parts of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and in some parts of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado and Wyoming. Outside of these states, Blue Bell does not distribute due to its commitment to a Direct Selling Distribution method.Learn more about Grocery
