The company sells its ice cream through more than 45 wholesale distributors as well as its own growing group of shops, including the original Little Man in Denver’s Lower Highland neighborhood and Sweet Cooie’s in the city’s Congress Park neighborhood. Committed to community improvement and global philanthropy, Little Man fights hunger through its “Scoop for Scoop” initiative. For every scoop of ice cream the shop sells, one scoop of rice or beans is donated to villages in developing countries.
