Yarnell's Ice Cream of Searcy, Arkansas -- a staple at Fourth of July celebrations across the state -- announced shortly before the holiday weekend it was shutting down operations immediately
The independent ice cream company cited financial reasons for the closure, and 200 people will lose their jobs.
Over the past year, we’ve examined many possible avenues to keep the company afloat – including seeking capital investors, new sources of lending and possible sale to both financial and strategic buyers. Unfortunately, those efforts have not been successful
One week after the closing of Yarnell's Ice cream in Searcy, state and city leaders say there's an aggressive push right now to give the plant a second chance.
While the community waits for a potential buyer, we've learned today that plans are set for later this month to help the roughly 200 Yarnell's workers who lost their jobs last week
It's an effort to help out in the meantime while dialogue continues to get these trucks rolling out again.
