We have been in business together for the past 20 years, creating brands that make a difference. We are co-founders of both the Baby Genius and Kid Genius brands with millions of DVDs and Music CDs viewed and listened to by children all over the world. 

Our new venture, Boardwalk Hospitality, Inc. will focus on opening fun food & beverage franchises in high traffic locations in Southern California. Our first store will be a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream store on the famous Venice Boardwalk. 

We are extremely excited about this as Ben & Jerry’s mission, to deeply respect its employees and to support the local communities of which they are part, mirrors our own. Lately Ben & Jerry’s has become very involved in what they call “Climate Justice”.  We are living in a world where the effects of climate change are increasingly real and where it cannot be denied that man made pollution is adversely affecting our fragile ecosystem. Ben & Jerry’s launched their first carbon offset program in 2002 and in 2007 they launched their first global warming advocacy campaign in partnership with the Dave Matthews Band. 

Please feel free to contact us if you have a local Venice charity that is dear to your heart and that we might be able to support through our programs.
