On a hot summer day in July 1945, Alice Handel began serving ice cream out of her husband’s gas station in Youngstown, Ohio. Her first batches were made using old-fashioned recipes with fresh fruit she picked from her own backyard. Since then, Handel’s has grown to include locations in eight states. The menu has expanded to include more than 100 flavors of homemade ice cream and yogurt. Handel’s success has been documented in many national publications including USA Today, People Magazine, Chocolatier Magazine and U.S. News and World Report.
*Recently published books The Ten Best of Everything and Everybody Loves Ice Cream both recognize Handel’s as one of the best ice creams in the world.
