Co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield created Free Cone Day as a “thank you” to the community that supported their business.

“It’s not just free ice cream, it’s free Ben and Jerry’s and that’s the difference,” spokesman Sean Greenwood told 1010 WINS. “I think people want to come down, they want to hang out because it’s a fun thing to do.”

The company is celebrating its 34th year.
