In 1978, the same year that Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream was founded in Vermont, two entrepreneurs in New Hampshire started a small poster company that evolved into White Mountain Puzzles.
Ben & Jerry’s rapidly became a national brand and was sold to food giant Unilever in 2000. White Mountain Puzzles grew more gradually and is still a family owned business. Founders Cronan Minton and Ted Wroblewski are still involved but have turned over the day to day operations and ownership to their respective sons, Sean and Colin.
Ted and Cronan are proud that White Mountain Puzzles has grown into one of the top puzzle brands in the United States! It took them longer than Ben & Jerry, but the satisfaction of having their sons involved in the business is worth its weight in gold.
