Dippin’ Dots Founder, Chairman Curt Jones to speak at Saint Louis University Thursday, Dec. 5

ST. LOUIS – Curt Jones, founder and chairman of the board of Dippin’ Dots, will be the guest speaker at Saint Louis University’s Institute for Private Business at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, at the John Cook School of Business, 3674 Lindell. The event is free and open to the public, however seating is limited and registration is required.

In 1988, Dippin’ Dots founder Curt Jones changed the way the world enjoys ice cream. A microbiologist who attended Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Jones pioneered the process of cryogenic encapsulation — a scientific way of saying he used super-cold freezing methods to make little beads of ice cream.

Not only were the ice cream beads delicious and fun to eat, the ice cream now has a home in thousands of locations worldwide in theme parks, fairs and festivals, and franchised stores locations.

The program is presented by Brown Smith Wallace with additional support from CMA and the Saint Louis University Billiken Angels.
