Carvel’s Ice Cream Window Cone


In 1949, Carvel began franchising under the name “Carvel Dairy Freeze.” By the early 1950s, the company had 25 stores. New franchisees undertook an 18-day training program at the “Carvel College of Ice Cream Knowledge,” and were sent an in-house magazine called “The Shopper’s Road.” Carvel provided building plans for franchises, which were initially stand-alone glass fronted stores. Most of the franchises were decorated with this large ice cream cone in the window.
