After 10 years in business, Mora Iced Creamery is ready to go big.
The small-batch, artisnal ice cream maker will debut a new Poulsbo factory on Saturday.
At 10,000-square-feet, the facility isn’t huge. It is, however, a significant step in the evolution of the company.
Mora plans to begin offering franchises this summer, with the aim of creating 40 to 50 new locations over the next five years. The Viking Avenue factory will help Mora keep up with demand from new shops, while supplying wholesale to grocery stores and restaurants.
Mora’s original Bainbridge Island production facility could only meet the needs of the three shops in Poulsbo, Kingston and Winslow.
The Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal recently wrote about Mora’s expansion plans. You can find that story here.
