Handel's Homemade Ice Cream Franchise Overview


My customer came to the store. She had just left the hospital after giving birth to her first child and the first thing she wanted more than anything else, more than a shower...was getting Handel's ice cream. How awesome is that? We're super lucky to have such a fan base of people who love being here. ...ice cream is happy business, that is one of the best parts of the job.

Franchisee owner, Berwin, Pennsylvania

Had lots of success over the years...a lot of fun over the years...it’s been a good run, we’re very happy we did it. My brother-in-law opened a store in Greenwood, Indiana three years ago, very successful, he’s doing great, loves the business...so we obviously believe in the product or I would never have put him in the business. If you’re thinking about the move, you won’t regret it. It’s been great for us over the last 20 years.
