About Ziegenfelder Company: The spirited team at Ziegenfelder Company is proud of their growth and the delicious fun treats they’ve been producing for well over a century. The company started as a small candy store in West Virginia in 1861. In 1922, it was incorporated as an ice cream business, and was later purchased by the Lando family, which expanded the business into all types of frozen treats. Today, the company is focused on their Budget $aver brand of popsicles and is lead by President and CEO Lisa Allen. Lisa and her four siblings grew up visiting the factory where her grandfather and father worked. In 1999, Lisa began working alongside her father until the business was put in her hands in 2003.
