From behind a frozen granite slab, the staff at Cold Stone Creamery and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory uses twin spatulas to blend custom servings of ice cream and creative mix-ins to fit customers’ exact specifications. At the Fishers location, customers can also indulge in hand-crafted chocolates from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Founded by Donald and Susan Sutherland in 1988, Cold Stone began under the hot Arizona sun, eventually spreading its frosty fingers to encompass more than 1,400 locations worldwide. Despite the size of the company, each location’s staff keeps up the handcrafted quality, making ice cream onsite every day and using those signature spatulas to create delicious pointillist art against the freezer wall.
