Biz-Tec Blast Returns to CBT Homecoming Tailgate

Colonel's Battalion Cadets enjoy Biz-Tec Blast

Biz-Tec Blast ice cream has become a Homecoming tradition for CBT. As soon Mad Scoops puts up their giant inflatable balloon, it does not take long for a steady stream of excited Homecoming fans find their way to a "Little Taste of Eastern" with CBT's special blend of Biz-Tec Blast.

The College of Business and Technology is partnering with Richmond’s local ice cream shop, Mad Scoops, to produce the Biz-Tec Blast ice cream flavor that is now available for purchase. This maroon colored ice cream is a combination of chocolate, berry, and truffle flavors as well as EKU’s own Meadowbrook Farm milk and has become a popular favorite since being introduced two years ago.

Throughout the afternoon, Dean Tom Erekson gave away over 500 scoops of the special flavor to visitors. “This is something that is out of the box,” Erekson says. “Biz-Tec Blast shows the innovative side of our college and I hope other people see this as well.”

Biz-Tec Blast may even be available to ship before long. Global Supply Chain Management students in Kirby Easterling's Logistics class are working on a special distribution project. Alumni, parents, and the current EKU community can get a “Little Taste of Eastern” anywhere they go with this new ice cream flavor.

Stay tuned for updates!
