The Cold Molds line of flexible, siliconized rubber molds was originally developed by Russ L’Hommedieu, owner of “Pirate’s Cove Ice Cream”, in Southold, NY.
After building the basis for the product line, Russ found that the day to day management of the company — nevermind its growth to include additional products — required more time than he could devote to it, especially since he was also busily growing his own physical therapy business.
In 2007, Russ decided that the best thing for him to do was to sell the business to someone who could devote the time and resources into building the Cold Molds brand. So on January 1st, 2008, Russ sold the Cold Molds company to Steve Reppucci, of Mad Maggie’s Ice Cream.
Cold Molds now shares its headquarters with Mad Maggie’s Ice Cream, at 1025 Osgood Street, North Andover, MA. In its new home, Cold Molds now has the space to grow, along with a new owner who’s a fervent fan of the Cold Molds products, and ready to help other ice cream shop owners learn how the Cold Molds products can help them make their stores more profitable.
