Bring the ORIGINAL
ice cream Shoppe to
your neighborhood!

From our humble beginnings in 1934 to our current standing as one of America’s most beloved brands, Carvel® has grown from one location to more than 400 franchise and foodservice locations in more than 20 states and over 10 countries.

There were restrictions on where I could grow with my pizza franchise, but not with Carvel®. There are so many areas to grow for people who are looking to diversify their portfolio.
