Welcome to Schoep's Ice Cream
From its humble beginnings in 1928, when E.J. Schoephoester started making ice cream in the back of his Madison, Wisconsin grocery store, Schoep's Ice Cream has had people clamoring for more. P.B. Thomsen purchased the company twelve years later and began wholesaling ice cream in 2-1/2 gallon containers. Schoep's "Home Pak" was introduced after World War II and is still the heart of the Schoep's product line today.
Schoep's has been owned by the Thomsen family for almost eight decades, and today there are four third-generation Thomsens working at the Madison headquarters. Last year Schoep's made more than 12 million gallons of ice cream. That's nearly a quarter of a billion scoops of frozen fun!
