If you’ve ever driven to Sauble Beach from the Greater Toronto Area, you may have passed by the Chapman’s factory in Markdale. Since 1973, the Chapman family has been building a successful business and uses 100% Canadian dairy (what’s up Trump). Their production facility burned down in 2009 but dedicated owners and team rebuilt it, bigger and better, within a year and a half. And – have you ever noticed how some of their competitors call their product “frozen dessert”? That means it’s a vegetable oil-based product, not real ice cream – which Chapman’s proudly produces.
