Marc Roth, the owner of “Dessert Corp,” says he first opened an ice cream store in Manhattan two years ago. He says he then opened up a factory in the Bronx last year to make treats that are made without common food allergy ingredients such as nuts, eggs, and sesame.
“We realized that there’s a tremendous need, there’s no competition, there’s nobody else out there doing,” Roth says.
The facility has 10 employees ensuring no wrong or harmful ingredients are accidentally added while the ice cream is churned, poured and frozen.
Customers can choose from seven different allergy-free flavors that come in cups, pints, and bars.
Roth says his ice cream is also available at about 2,000 grocery stores across the U.S.
