Each month, a handful of diverse businesses linked together by a common theme are featured on the Secretary of State’s website at OhioBusinessProfile.com, where Ohioans are encouraged to go to submit companies they feel are deserving of recognition in future months. Velvet Ice Cream was featured as part of Ohio Keeping Cool Month in August 2011.
