In 1948, Earle Swensen opened his first Ice Cream Shoppe in San Francisco atop Russian Hill offering his ice cream as "Good as Father Used to Make". Little did he realize that Swensen's would today, be a name synonymous with extraordinary delicious ice cream the world had ever known.
Since then, for more then 60 years, more than 180 flavours of ice cream have been created and enjoyed by both young and old, making Earle Swensen's America's, “Ice Cream Man". Ice cream lovers certainly agreed because today, there are over 300 Swensen's ice cream outlets worldwide, including Asia, the Middle East, USA and South America.
Swensen’s was the first national Ice Cream Parlor to serve a premium ice cream that is all natural. The business was built and continues to be built on three founding principles that have never changed: Quality, Quantity and Value for Money. From full service, old-fashioned food stores to modern kiosks, we offer franchisees a range of sweet opportunities. Two types of Swensen’s offerings have evolved throughout the years, the Swensen’s restaurant and Swensen’s ice cream parlour.
