Central Wisconsin’s King Cone nominated for state recognition
For the City Times
AMHERST – Central Wisconsin’s King Cone has been nominated for statewide recognition.
Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC), the state’s chamber of commerce, is hosting their fourth annual “Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin” contest. Senator Patrick Testin (Stevens Point), who each year suggests a product made in the 24th District for consideration, chose to spotlight King Cone’s Salty Caramel Truffle ice cream.
“There’s nothing cooler than ice cream on a hot summer day – especially when it’s made right here in the dairy state,” said Testin. “King Cone has been helping customers chill for over three decades, and they continue to add new flavors every year. Their award winning Salty Caramel Truffle ice cream and the company’s story make it a strong contender for ‘Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin.’”
King Cone has been a fixture in Central Wisconsin since 1984, when it opened its first location in Amherst. Since then, they have also opened shops in Plover and Wisconsin Rapids.
Voting for the Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin contest will opens Sept. 9. Individuals can vote once per 24-hour period through Sept. 15, for the initial voting round. Votes can be cast at madeinwis.com.
