Ben & Jerry's is also celebrating their 30th birthday today. 30 years ago 2 friends, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, opened up an ice cream shop in Vermont. They soon became an international success, and Free Cone Day was first celebrated back in 1979 to thank loyal customers for their business. And, in keeping with their mission that 'business has a responsibility to give back to the community,' each Ben & Jerry's shop elects a local charity and collects donations on that day. So don't be stingy with your money just because it's Free Cone Day! :)
