Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscuna are not only the Founders of Ample Hills Creamery, they are also husband and wife. Prior to launching Ample Hills Creamery, Brian was a sci-fi movie writer and Jackie was a New York City high school teacher. They had two young children and a shared passion, which took them on many adventures throughout the (NY) tri-state area exploring community gathering spots and tasting all sorts of ice cream. Brian had always dabbled in creating homemade ice cream, but he did not have any formal training. Neither of them had any entrepreneurial experience. What they created/envisioned was based on their personal experience as enthusiastic customers and parents. The rest was all on-the-job training. Brian and Jackie are now fully-dedicated to Ample Hills Creamery, perfecting their product and on their way to opening a 10th location of Ample Hills Creamery.
