Izzy’s at NICRA Convention

The National Ice Cream Retailers Association is a trade organization whose members are in the retail ice cream; soft serve; frozen custard, gelato; frozen yogurt and water ice businesses. Since 1933, NICRA has helped hundreds of ice cream and frozen dessert entrepreneurs get started and prosper. Each year, NICRA meets in a different city for a 3-day long convention full of classes, seminars and ice cream tasting (of course)!

Izzy’s has participated at the annual NICRA convention for the last 3 years and this year (November 11th- 13th) we were fortunate enough to take home ribbons again!
