Under the leadership of Joe and Mike Dager Velvet Ice Cream has come a long way from the old Velvet Ice Cream store. Now known as "Ohio's Ice Cream Capital", Velvet distributes its product to Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan and West Virginia. In addition, Velvet is the preferred distributor of Nestlé's brand, Good Humor brand, Häagen Daz, Ben and Jerry's, and other national brand novelty treats.

Family owned and operated since 1914, this fourth generation of Dagers has helped to bring the once hand-cranked ice cream operation into the 21st century.

Velvet's new Visitor Center opened in May 2000. Inside, guests can see videos, ask questions, and take part in a tour of the factory.
