The founder of Paducah-based Dippin’ Dots has resumed day-to-day control of the company and has released President Tom Leonard and Operations Vice President Dominic Fontana. Curt Jones, who founded the ice cream company in the late ‘80s, told the Paducah Sun, “I’m trying to restructure the company so that we’re the proper size and will be profitable even if sales continue to be down this year.” Dippin’  Dots has cut 29 workers since December, leaving the company with approximately 170 employees. Some 150 employees are employed at Dippin’ Dots’ Paducah headquarters, while the remainder are employed at the company’s California warehouse.
