Founder Tom Carvel opened the first Carvel ice cream store in 1934. As the years went by, Tom never stopped developing and improving upon his already successful model. He created his own specialized equipment and invented fun new flavors. He decided to take his business into franchising in 1947 and the Carvel name continues to grow. The brand has its own line of ice cream and ice cream cakes, which are sold widely.
