Eric Holtzclaw and Susan McMullen interview Ari Fleischer and Aly Moler of Frozen Pints featuring beer-flavored ice cream.
Ari grew up in New York and moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University. He graduated with a degree in business in 2006. After school, he couldn’t leave the warm weather and southern hospitality, so he’s been in Atlanta ever since. Before starting Frozen Pints, Ari worked in client service with The Nielsen Company. He supported both the Georgia Pacific and Coca-Cola accounts and gained valuable experience in market research and the retail world, but his true passion has always been craft beer. He started Frozen Pints in late 2010 after a serendipitous accident involving beer and an ice cream maker. He’s worked with his partner, Aly Moler, to build the business since then. His favorite part about his current job is the “R&D” – someone has to try all the beers to make the next great flavor…
A Virginia native, Aly Moler moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University, graduated in 2009 from Goizueta’s undergraduate business program, and began her professional career in the corporate world. She worked in Global IT at Coca-Cola before securing a position with The Nielsen Company, where she consulted with clients on marketing and market research solutions. It was during this time that she met Ari, they bonded over an appreciation of good food and drink, and she joined him in developing the innovative concept. She recently left her day job to focus on Frozen Pints, and has enjoyed the challenge of pioneering a new space in the food and beverage worlds. She’s also glad that all her time spent as an aspiring foodie is paying off.
