The Ultimate Ice Cream ExperienceTM 

Cold Stone Creamery® is one of the most talked about ice cream companies in the world today. And that’s just the way we like it! Renowned for offering super-premium ice cream for more than 25 years, people everywhere recognize the quality associated with our brand and are more likely to be repeat customers because of it. 

Cold Stone Sunday

How good is our ice cream? Well, let's just say that on a scale of 1 to 10, we're somewhere around an 11.5. Our super-premium ice cream and waffle cones are made fresh daily right inside each store. Fresh-baked brownies, brand-name mix-ins, fruits and nuts are blended together on our frozen granite stone. From unique ice cream CreationsTM, cakes and shakes to ice cream cupcakes and cookie sandwiches, nobody serves up the ultimate indulgence like Cold Stone Creamery.

But we’re about more than just serving amazing ice cream. We like to think we’re really in the business of making people happy

It's all about what we call the 10-Minute Vacation® - that 10-minute getaway people deserve from the world outside our doors. When they head inside any Cold Stone Creamery, that's what they'll get. From our enthusiastic, singing crew members, to the shared laughter of a family enjoying a treat together, if it’s making our customers, their friends or their loved ones happy, then we’re doing our jobs right!
