Strickland's Frozen Custard

Strickland's Frozen Custard Deliciously Different Homemade Ice Cream
(1438)

Strickland's Frozen Custard was founded in 1936 by Bill and Florence Strickland. During his years as an Akron Pure Milk employee, Bill developed his own rich recipe of cream, eggs, sugar and other ingredients. With his formula perfected, Bill turned his attention to finding an ice cream machine that would quickly freeze the ice cream, while limiting the air whipped into the product. The result was Strickland's award-winning Ice Cream. Bill and Florence built the first Strickland's Frozen Custard stand on Triplett Avenue in Akron, Ohio, and the Strickland's legend was born. The original stand is still in operation today, run by the third generation of the Strickland's family, and serving the same fantastic ice cream that made Strickland's a local landmark. In 2002, Strickland’s Marketing Corp. was formed to duplicate the success of the original Strickland’s. After reverse-engineering machines that produce the same great taste as the originals, Strickland’s is now offering franchises in select markets.
