Snapshot: Boulder Ice Cream manufactures ice cream and other frozen desserts.

Leadership: Scott Roy has been president since 1997. Revenues increased 88 percent in 2011 and are projected to reach 34 percent this year.

Work force: The Boulder company, founded in 1994, employed nine full-time and two part-time workers in 2011. It plans to consolidate its work force with a Colorado-based food manufacturer this year.

Pivotal moments: In 2010, the company entered into a partnership with Whole Foods Markets to create an organic gelato line, which became the first such product to have national distribution. In December, the company moved manufacturing operations to a co-packer in Louisville, a change that allows the company to focus on sales and marketing.

Technological edge: Product innovation – such as developing nondairy options, novelties and pet products – is a big part of the artisan ice cream maker’s business.

Company culture: Cross training and exposure to numerous facets of the business is common for all employees. The company donates products to schools and charitable organizations, including $10,000 to $15,000 worth of product each year to metro Denver food share programs. The company is 100 percent wind-powered and maintains a zero-waste program.
