Bassetts Ice Cream in China
In May 2008, the first order of Bassetts Ice Cream was sent by container ship to Beijing, China. Mr. Sun Gongyun (James Sun) established the Beijing Sino-American Food Company in order to introduce Bassetts "World Famous" Ice Cream to this rapidly developing market. There are four locations serving Bassetts Ice Cream in China, with additional stores coming soon. In addition to his ice cream shops, Mr. Sun is distributing Bassetts Ice Cream to restaurants, hotels and grocery stores.
