SKOWHEGAN, Maine (AP) - Gifford’s Famous Ice Cream is embarking on the biggest expansion in the company’s history.

The company plans to spend $1.6 million to double the ice cream production capacity of the Skowhegan factory.

All of Gifford’s ice cream is made using antique 1940s freezers in a yellow clapboard factory in Skowhegan. The privately owned company is now being operated by fifth-generation Gifford family members.

John Gifford, the company’s co-owner, will be joined by other family members and Sen. Susan Collins for a formal announcement at an ice cream-scooping ceremony on Friday.
