“We’re both small businesses that grew our brands through innovation during the pandemic,” Brian Johnson, co-owner of The Pizza Bandit said, in a release. “To have the opportunity to partner up with a locally produced ice cream business that shares our values of quality products and customer service was easy to say yes to. I mean, it’s pizza and ice cream!”
