Three Twins, was established in 2005 in San Rafael, California by Neal Gottlieb and was named for Mr. Gottlieb, his twin brother, and his brother’s wife, who is also a twin. It was the first organic ice cream shop chain in the U.S. The company began distributing its products nationally after Whole Foods discovered them selling their ice cream at the Berkeley Farmers Market and included the brand in Whole Food’s own stores.
Three Twins opened a factory in Petaluma, CA in 2010. In order to streamline its cost structure, Three Twins moved the factory to Sheboygan, WI in mid-2019. The Company was also able to increase revenues to approximately $15 million for fiscal 2019. Its corporate headquarters remained in Petaluma, CA.
The Company’s products were sold through a number of channels, including retail, foodservice, club, and through Three Twins’ licensed retail stores, four of which were in California, while the rest are located in Tokyo, Japan, and Seoul, South Korea. Domestically, the Company has had success on the West Coast and has increased regional sales from $1.2 million to approximately $15 million, as noted above. The Company expanded into Asia in 2014 and has already surpassed $1 million in sales in its licensed Tokyo and Seoul locations, with a 25% Y-o-Y projected growth in the region.
On April 17, 2020, the company announced it was closing due to financial problems which were compounded by the corona virus pandemic .
