Dippin' Dots Goes Bankrupt

November 5, 2011

Airport and sports stadium staple Dippin' Dots, once called "the ice cream of the future," has filed for bankruptcy protection and may face foreclosure.

The ice cream maker filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Kentucky to avoid immediate foreclosure, but is hardly out of the woods. The company has 170 employees, 140 retail locations and agreements with 9,952 small vendors to sell their products. 

Microbiologist Curt Jones started the company in 1988.
