Snoqualmie Organic just hit shelves at Haggen... and we are ECSTATIC.

Kelsey Carey

Our hearts are teeming with excitement as we announce that our new line, Snoqualmie Organic is now available to purchase at all local Haggen stores!

In light of our deep-rooted history with Haggen, we chose to debut Snoqualmie Organic before the official launch in March. Haggen was the first retailer to give our pints a full freezer door with EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of our classic flavors. Now they are the first retailer to carry all 7 flavors of our organic line which is the first super-premium organic ice cream on the market.

In 2001, Haggen became the first larger grocery chain to carry Snoqualmie Ice Cream pints. Haggen's dedicated belief in our product was the catalyst to our company's growth. By the end of our first year, we sold over 150,000 pints of ice cream - compare that to the humble 2000 pints we sold for the entire YEAR in 1997. 

We are proud of our 16-year relationship with Haggen, because it is built on the grounds of integrity and trust. Their unwavering belief in us and support through good times and bad speaks volumes of their character and corporate culture - something that is admired and perpetuated through our own values. Special thanks to our past and present Haggen buyers, Ron Johnson and Joel Todd. You guys rock.

With that being said, grab a pint of Snoqualmie Organic at your local Haggen and eat your heart out :)

Employee Spotlight: Isaac

Kelsey Carey

Get to know a little bit more about our Snoqualmie Ice Cream Family each month with these quick personal interviews. This week's spotlight is on our very own, Isaac Lewis.

So how long have you been with the company?
About 8 months, a little before or at the beginning of June, I think.

Why did you apply?
I really just wanted to start making changes for the better and one of the goals I set was getting a job. I thought it would be really cool to be a part of making something so good.

Were you a fan of Snoqualmie Ice Cream before you saw the job posting?
Yeah it all kind of happened at the same time. I tried the lavender and fell in love with it [ice cream]. Then I saw the job on Indeed and I said 'No way, I just tried that ice cream.' Joely e-mails me after and I was like YESSSSS!!! It was really cool, it was probably one of the happiest moments I had.

What do you do here?
I am a production line operator. I could call myself The Cup Whisperer or The Lid Guru, you know, but I guess production line operator sums it up. 

What do you love about working here?
It's like a new family. Everybody here cares about each other and cares about what we do to contribute to the main cause. I was just talking to my Uber driver about it. Man, I just love talking about my job. I love everything about it. There's nothing that I really dislike about this job. Except when the machines stop working - that's the only pet peeve of mine. Even then, we figure out how to fix it. But yeah - mainly just the family environment. You don't see that or get that a lot.

So what's your favorite ice cream then?
My favorite one to make is the coconut 'cause that was the first flavor that I made when I started working here. Every time we make it I always think 'Awesome! We're making coconut again.' Taste wise - they're all so good, but probably the Peppermint Stick Gelato would be my favorite because it's a really unique flavor. 

What do you like to do outside of work?
I like to skateboard and I like to make a little bit of music. I want to be able to get into public speaking and help at-risk youth. 

Tell me what your life motto is.
Progress before perfection. If I ever find myself getting really distracted by trying to do something so perfect, I just stop and I look at how much progress I made. It makes me aware of all the positive things. 

Strangest talent that you have. Go.
Probably making people laugh. I can make somebody laugh or smile in any situation. No matter how stressful the situation i'll still be able to make you giggle and I think that's a pretty strange talent.

Any phobias?
Commitment phobias and fear of authority. I'm really hard-headed, and it's probably because I've had to learn so much on my own at a young age, but I'm getting passed it! I'm definitely a lot better than when I started here. I've grown and made a lot of improvements on myself over the last year.

Give me 3 things on your bucket list.
1. I want to go on a hot air balloon
2. I want to play basketball with Obama
3. Travel to at least 30 different countries - even start my own company in a different country.

What's one fun fact about yourself?
I love Snoqualmie Ice Cream. We're all so awesome. I feel like I'm a part of something that's great and there's nothing like it. It's incredible.


 

 

Happy 20th Birthday Snoqualmie Ice Cream!

Kelsey Carey

Today we celebrate 2 decades of Handcrafted Happiness™. Here are 20 fun facts to commemorate these 20 special years :)

  1. Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream was originally located in Lynnwood, WA!
  2. Being proud residents of the Pacific Northwest, the original owners wanted to make the company name very unique and well-associated to Washington. Thus, Snoqualmie Ice Cream came to life.
  3. It wasn't always called Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream. It was once changed to Top Hat for a brief moment and then back to Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream - thank goodness.
  4. Current owners, Barry & Shahnaz Bettinger, bought Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream in 1997.
  5. There were zero employees on staff when Barry & Shahnaz bought the company.
  6. We now have a staff of 15 employees!
  7. Back in 1997, we were only sold in two Larry's Markets and a handful of independent stores.
  8. We are now sold in over 1,000 stores west of the Mississippi River and growing nationally.
  9. The Maltby location was built in 2005. It was the FIRST EVER environmentally-sustainable commercial building in Snohomish County.
  10. There used to be a mini farm on the property! Home to 400 chickens!
  11. The eggs the chickens laid were used in our ice cream - that's about as fresh as it gets.
  12. In 1997 Snoqualmie Ice Cream sold about 3,000 pints for the entire YEAR. We are now producing an average of 25,000 pints per WEEK!
  13. In 2014, we listened to our customers and took soy lecithin and carrageenan out of our pints and replaced it with eggs.
  14. Our conventional line has gone through over 5 rebrands!
  15. Our main production facility is peanut-free!
  16. All the chocolate for our conventional line is imported by Barry Callebaut to ensure it is GMO-Free.
  17. Our soft-serve mix is the exclusive soft-serve ice cream for the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field!
  18. We became USDA-Certified Organic at the end of 2016 - the first super-premium organic ice cream currently to be in the market. EVER.
  19. We also became a Certified B-Corp around the same time - the first Ice Cream Company in the Northwest to become a B-Corp!
  20. Our company dog's name is Lucas; he's half poodle and half schnauzer - a Schnoodle!
