Hill & Markes to Co-Host 4 Shakes & Cakes Seminars throughout New York State



Hill & Markes, a 113-year-old wholesale distributor, is pleased to announce they will be co-hosting four seminars throughout New York State with their partners Taylor Upstate. The seminars will highlight how to make unique and savory ice cream shakes and cakes.

Ice cream customers will have the chance to see new product and show specials. Most importantly, they will have the opportunity to learn how to capitalize on trends in the ice cream business: how to make the insanely popular “freak shakes”, create and decorate ice cream cakes, and increase profitability by offering more goods to go.

“Hill & Markes is thrilled to co-host these shakes & cakes seminars throughout the state with our fabulous partner, Taylor Upstate. We are excited to introduce new product to our customers and to give them the resources to take advantage of upcoming industry trends. We encourage our customers to register online at www.hillnmarkes.com/shakesandcakes for a chance learn about all things ice cream and to win prizes,” stated Katie Bruno, Digital Content Specialist at Hill & Markes, Inc.

Hill & Markes has collaborated with Taylor Upstate of Albany for 30+ years in presenting a full package for the ice cream customer. Together, they provide the supplies needed to beat the heat with tasty treats.

“Every year, our great ice cream customers are asking us about new ice cream products and trends in the industry. With partnering with Taylor Upstate, we are going to bring this year’s hottest trends and products to our customer base at four locations across New York State.”- Mike Powers, Director of eCommerce and Marketing at Hill & Markes, Inc.
