Experts in Innovation
If it has anything to do with ice cream, it
has everything to do with Cold Stone
Creamery. From unique ice cream creations to
smoothies, cakes and shakes – nobody serves
up the ultimate indulgence like Cold Stone.
It starts with using the highest quality
ingredients and ends with our signature
process for preparing your custom creation
on a frozen granite stone.
Because the World Deserves Better Ice
Rest assured, our expertise in innovating
indulgence didn’t just happen by accident.
Our founders, Donald and Susan Sutherland,
discovered their true calling in 1988 when,
driven by their passion to serve the world's
best ice cream, they opened the first Cold
Stone Creamery in Tempe, Arizona. And now,
more than 1,350 stores later, people have
really warmed up to their cool idea.
Has It Really Been That Long?
Through almost 20 years of serving up the
finest ice cream, cakes, smoothies and
shakes, some things have certainly changed.
And frankly, some things haven’t. Ever since
we opened our first store back in 1988,
we’ve been serving up what we refer to as
Creations™. In other words, if you want it
in your ice cream – you get it. By mixing
nuts, fruits and candy into our smooth and
creamy ice cream on a frozen granite stone
(around here, we call it “the stone”) we're
actually more like ice cream artists. Over
the years, we’ve stumbled on a few
concoctions of our own that we call our Cold
Stone Signature Creations. Ice cream for
breakfast, a smoothie for lunch, and a
sensible cake for dinner? – Who says you
can’t eat this amazing ice cream for all
