Cold Stone Creamery
Cold Stone Creamery was founded in 1988 by husband and wife team Donald and Susan Sutherland. The Sutherlands had set out on a mission to create the most delicious ice cream possible. After some experimentation they came up with their signature style of frozen dessert, which is made fresh daily in the shop. Ingredients like candy, cookies, nuts, and fruit are folded in over an ice cold stone to each customer’s specifications. The company began selling franchises in 1994 and Cold Stone Creameries now number over 1,400.
