About Wells

Making Memories—and History—for More Than 100 Years

Ice cream is more than a treat. It’s a memorable experience. Since 1913, we’ve devoted ourselves to giving you the best of both.

Starting with only a horse and a delivery wagon, Wells Enterprises, Inc. began as a dairy and today has grown to be the country’s largest privately held, family-owned manufacturer of ice cream and frozen treats. We’re headquartered in Le Mars, Iowa—also known as the Ice Cream Capital of the World—and we proudly provide quality products to locations throughout the United States.

A Century of Sweet Treats

From humble beginnings as a one-horse dairy operation to leading the industry with beloved ice cream brands, Wells has been committed to quality, value, and the joy of ice cream every step of the way.
