After a successful initial run with One Buffalo beer, it was decided to experiment with another product – ice cream. One Buffalo Ice Cream was exclusively introduced to fans this past October at First Niagara Center and (716) Food and Sport in Buffalo, and Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY. Now the product is hitting retail stores in WNY.
One Buffalo Ice Cream is the result of a partnership between Pegula Sports & Entertainment (PSE) and Perry’s Ice Cream. The flavor of the ice cream is described as “rich and creamy vanilla ice cream loaded with swirls of sea salt caramel, sponge candy pieces and fudge-coated pretzels.”
The evolution of the ice cream came about when Kim Pegula sat down with the Perry’s team to craft a flavor that the collaborators felt would be a big hit with the community.
“No one likes dessert more than I do and we are thrilled to be partnering with Perry’s to launch the One Buffalo Premium Ice Cream brand,” said Kim Pegula. “Perry’s dedication and devotion to Western New York truly embodies the spirit of One Buffalo.”
Robert Denning, President & CEO of Perry’s Ice Cream, stated, “We are proud to be associated with the ‘One Buffalo’ movement by providing a product that unifies and energizes the community.” He continued, “In terms of the packaging graphic design, we chose to illustrate the Buffalo skyline on the carton to express our excitement for the resurgence and major reinvestments in the city of Buffalo and Western New York community.”
Brian Perry, Executive Vice President & Chairman of Perry’s Ice Cream, explained, “One Buffalo represents our pride and enthusiasm in Buffalo and its culture. It signifies the feeling of being part of a bigger picture, whether that’s cheering with thousands of other fans at a Buffalo Sabres game, or swaying in a crowd at a Canalside concert. Our fans will feel that same sense of community when they enjoy a scoop of One Buffalo.”
