James Freid, CEO

James drove an ice cream truck in 1990 to pay for a trip to Papua New Guinea. He was so impressive that Blue Bell Ice Cream hired James as a manager the next year. In 1997 he purchased the street vending business from Blue Bell Ice Cream.

He changed the name to Big Bell Ice Cream and is now the CEO (Chief Eating Officer – someone has to test the new products) of Big Bell, and owns a freezer with more square footage than his home
