Kemps Continues Its Community Giving Tradition at Grandma's Marathon

Kemps, Minnesota’s hometown dairy company is proud to continue its sponsorship of the Grandma’s Marathon weekend in 2012.

Kemps will continue the company’s tradition of generosity at the Michelina’s All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner where attendees will be treated to a delicious, complimentary ice cream dessert after their meal. Kemps will also be at the finish line, refueling Grandma’s Marathon and Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon competitors with delicious Kemps chocolate milk and cool them down with a refreshing Kemps ice cream treat.

Based in Saint Paul, Kemps was first created out of a small creamery in Southeastern Minnesota owned by the Kemps family. Today, Kemps has more than 1,450 employees at facilities in Rochester and St. Paul, along with the Franklin milk plant in Duluth and another facility in Cedarburg Wisconsin. Kemps highlights its Minnesota heritage through partnerships with such local icons as Caribou Coffee, Pillsbury and the public radio show Prairie Home Companion. Among Kemps’ innovative products: Yo-J juice/yogurt blend, Easy Squeeze Sour Cream, IttiBitz frozen desserts and new SnoBlitz (a soft serve treat right from your freezer). In addition to sponsoring Grandma’s Marathon, Kemps has also given back over six million dollars to hundreds of schools through its “Nickels for Schools” program.
