Our History

The story of Gandy’s Dairy actually starts with the story of Bell Ice Cream Co., which began in 1924 when Joe Bonner bought a bankrupt ice cream plant in Lubbock, Texas. The name "Bell" came from Bell County, where the business was located. Soon after, the company was moved, where it grew and expanded for many years. In 1970, a fire destroyed most of the original plant, but the dairy rebuilt a modern milk manufacturing plant in its place.
