Bassetts Ice Cream is Now Available in China
In May 2008, the first order of Bassetts Ice Cream was sent by container ship to Beijing, China. In July 2008, the first overseas ice cream shop serving Bassetts Ice Cream was opened in Yantai, a coastal city southeast of Beijing, by Mr. Sun Gongyun (James Sun). Two additional store locations are currently under development in Beijing.
Mr. Sun established the Beijing Sino-American Food Company in order to introduce Bassetts "World Famous" Ice Cream to this rapidly developing market. In addition to his ice cream shops, Mr. Sun is distributing Bassetts Ice Cream to restaurants, hotels and grocery stores.
