GlacierPoint Acquires Southern Ice Cream And Gourmet Foods


The Bronx, New York-based GlacierPoint Enterprises Inc. has acquired Southern Ice Cream and Gourmet Foods, a full-service distributor of ice cream and related products.

The GlacierPoint and Southern partnership expands the combined company’s geographic footprint, extending from South Carolina north to the U.S./Canadian border. The consolidated resources and capabilities of GlacierPoint and Southern provide an opportunity to deliver a level of customer service and care that is targeted to exceed current industry norms.

Kim and Chance DelCastillo, second-generation owners of Southern, will continue in a senior advisory capacity, while Bailey Jordan, general manager at Southern, will lead the operations as president of the newly formed GlacierPoint Carolinas division in conjunction with the senior leadership team of GlacierPoint.

“The establishment of the Carolinas division is a momentous landmark for GlacierPoint in our efforts to further elevate customer and supplier relationships over a rapidly expanding service territory,” said Jim Schubauer, CEO and executive chairman of GlacierPoint.

“Underpinned by the strength and depth of the foundation built by Kim and Chance, the addition of the Carolinas division stands as our latest extension of GlacierPoint’s unwavering commitment and dedication to the flawless execution of our business model.”

Southern is a full-service distributor of ice cream and related products to grocery stores, convenience stores, pharmacies and scoop shops, mainly operating in North and South Carolina. Southern primarily distributes Nestlé ice cream and frozen products, as well as Wells ice cream (Blue Bunny), Mars, Tropicale and other frozen and fresh products. Southern is a second-generation family-owned business with more than 45 years of operating history and is based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“Since our founding in 1978, we’ve prided ourselves in conducting business under the same core principle of exceptional customer service embodied by what we immediately saw in GlacierPoint,” said Kim DelCastillo. “Chance and I felt the opportunity to join such an exciting story and share in the development of that vision with the rest of the GlacierPoint team is an incredible opportunity for us and we look forward to helping build this tremendous platform.”
