Shelley Roth is President of Pierre’s Ice Cream Company, an 88-year-old regional ice cream manufacturer and distributor. Pierre’s products are sold throughout Ohio, several other states. The company also manufactures private label lines for several local and national retail chains as well as distributes many national brands of ice cream. Since 1932, Pierre’s has remained in the heart of Cleveland, Ohio; with its original, classic recipes as daily reminders of the company’s dedication to quality.

These investments have sustained the company’s operation as well as demonstrated Pierre’s commitment and leadership in revitalization and redevelopment of a once blighted urban neighborhood.
