About Carvel Ice Cream
If Tom Carvel's ice-cream truck hadn’t had a flat tire one fateful day in 1934, he may never have started the country’s first retail ice-cream company. Faced with losing his entire supply of ice cream to the heat of that Memorial Day weekend, he simply sold it from the side of the road, and he was so successful that, years later, he opened his first store on that same site.
Carvel stores soon sprang up across the Northeast, including one in DeWitt, New York. Opened in the 1940s, the same year ice cream was first declared a food group, that location is the oldest still-operating Carvel franchise in the country, according to the Syracuse Post-Standard.
Every day—not just in DeWitt, but in Carvel shops from California to Vermont—the store’s staffers whip up batches of their soft-serve ice cream to create cones, sundaes, and shakes. Carvel's treat makers also layer their famous chocolate and vanilla ice-cream cakes with crunchies, while molding them in shapes and sizes ranging from a small square to the famous Fudgie the Whale.
