CHESTERTON -

A northwest Indiana company that makes frozen smoothies is planning continued growth in 2019. Chesterton-based Frozen Garden currently sells its smoothies in multiple Indiana locations, as well as stores in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The company launched in 2015 with three employees and it expects to grow to 10-12 in 2019.

Chief Executive Officer Allyson Straka says production and sales have tripled over the last year and plans by year's end call for Frozen Garden to be available in mid-Atlantic states and Florida. The company works with four farms in Indiana to source produce for the smoothies, which are produced and packaged in a facility in Valparaiso.

Frozen Garden was recently awarded a Best of Fresh and Frozen award at the KeHE Spring Show in Utah, which included some 2,200 natural, organic, specialty or fresh products. You can connect to more about Frozen Garden by clicking here.
