Comfy Cow looking to expand ice cream production in Louisville

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Fresh off hiring former Brown-Forman executive Don Berg as its CEO, The Comfy Cow is planning to invest $2 million in a free-standing “commissary” in Louisville where it would produce ice cream to sell in grocery stores and franchised locations around the country.

The Comfy Cow, owned by Roy and Tim Koons-McGee of Louisville, was approved for $350,000 in economic development incentives from the state and Louisville Metro on Thursday, which the company will get over 10 years if it follows through with the plan.

The “commissary” would ultimately employ 40 people, according to the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority.

The Comfy Cow currently makes its ice cream in the kitchen of its Frankfort Avenue store and has out grown that space, Tim Koons-McGee said in a brief phone interview Thursday.

He said the company is looking at three possible locations for the production facility.

Just last week, WDRB business reporter Courtney Godfrey profiled The Comfy Cow and its expansion plans. Check out the story (above).
