Built Around Families
In 1935, the Blake Brothers opened their first ice cream shoppe in Springfield, Massachusetts and named it “Friendly.” The name was a promise that the shoppe would be a friendly place for families to create lasting memories while enjoying handcrafted ice cream that was made fresh daily.
Today, we still believe in that promise which is why our creamery is dedicated to using only high quality, locally sourced ingredients and even some of the Blake’s original recipes. From traditional favorites and seasonal flavors to sundae-inspired indulgences and co-branded offerings, Friendly’s is proud to scoop up smile after smile in homes across the country.
Over the last 80+ years, we’ve expanded our beloved variety of products to include ice cream cakes, rolls, cups and novelties in our continued efforts to satisfy every craving and celebrate every moment.
Simply put: we strive to make the world a friendlier place, one scoop at a time.
