Ample Hills Files For Bankruptcy


The Brooklyn-based ice-cream maker filed for Chapter 11 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Eastern District of New York. There was no mention of closing any of its locations, just that the filing would give them an attempt to restructure.

Ample Hills released a statement that described the filing as part of “the necessary next steps to preserve and ultimately bring Ample Hills into its next phase,” as well as a move that “allows us to restructure and refocus. This is a strategic decision that allows us to course correct and continue doing what we love most: creating a delicious product from scratch, in our beloved Brooklyn home.”

An affidavit filed with the bankruptcy says the company owes about $1.5 million to creditors and landlords.

Former Disney CEO, Bob Iger, was such a fan that he made the personal choice to ask Amply Hills if they’d like to open a location at Walt Disney World. Soon after, Ample Hills opened a shop on Disney’s Boardwalk. There’s been no announcement regarding the location at Disney’s Boardwalk. Ample Hills was planning on opening a location at Disney Springs, and so far there’s also been no announcement regarding if it will open.

A rep for Ample Hills also said that the filing has nothing to do with the current coronavirus crisis.
