Love ice cream? (Who doesn’t!) Love an all-American success story? (Of course you do!) Then you won’t be able to help but love hearing about Doug Ducey’s entrepreneurial journey as previous partner & CEO of Cold Stone Creamery.
State Treasurer Doug Ducey was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. He came to Arizona in 1982 to attend Arizona State University where he graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Finance in 1986. He worked his way through college at Hensley & Co., the local Anheuser-Busch distributorship.
After a stint at Procter & Gamble, Doug helped launch Cold Stone Creamery on its path to success. When he and his business partner sold the company in 2007, Cold Stone had grown from a local scoop shop in Tempe to nearly 1,400 locations in all 50 states and it now operates in 25 countries around the world. It’s an American success story and he’s proud that it started right here in Arizona.
