Dippin’ Dots, a Paducah, Ky.-based cryogenically frozen ice cream producer, announced plans to expand its operation in McCracken County, Ky. The $3.3 million project is expected to create up to 28 full-time jobs, and will be operational at some point in 2020.

The project will accommodate demand for its patented cryogenic technology. Dippin’ Dots plans to purchase a 6,000-square-foot building near its current operation to accommodate the expansion. The space will include a new manufacturing floor, freezers and office and storage space.

“We are excited about this opportunity to expand our portfolio of products and services to industries outside our core products,” says Stan Jones, chief development officer. “This opportunity provides diversity in our portfolio, and will continue to provide additional growth opportunities for our company and the region.”
