A Deliciously Different Ice Cream Store Franchise!
Stricklands Ice Cream and Frozen Custard Store Franchise

Stricklands® Ice Cream - Since 1936!

Welcome to a franchise opportunity that can only be described as "deliciously different." With a history and tradition dating back to 1936, Stricklands has been a thriving, dynamic business in the greater Akron, Ohio area for generations. Our award-winning homemade ice cream is legendary and unlike any other ice cream in the industry.

Stricklands' recipe for success for our ice cream franchise opportunity is built on our great tasting ice cream, frozen custard, yogurt and sorbet - all made using our proprietary batch freezers, which were invented in the 1930s! The diversity of our product lines appeals to just about every consumer and Stricklands' unique taste creates customers for life. We make our products fresh every day at each Stricklands Ice Cream store, paying careful attention to three key elements:

Our Rich Cream Base – Carefully crafted using the formula created by Bill Strickland in the 1930s. We like to say that it only takes one bite of Stricklands' fresh, soft, smooth ice cream to make a customer for life! 

Fresh Ingredients – Stricklands keeps it real – real peaches, real strawberries, real bananas, real almonds, real chocolate chips – the list goes on and on. Stricklands uses only the best ingredients to create the best ice cream and frozen custard anywhere!

Old-Fashioned Quality – Our proprietary ice cream machines have been carefully engineered to reproduce the quality and durability of the machines built for Stricklands in the 1930s...which are still in operation today at our original location in Akron, Ohio. Our one-of-a-kind machines also produce incredible frozen custard, yogurt and sorbet!
