June 25, 2012 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA, GA – Don’t let the headlines fool you! There is no shortage of ice cream at America’s favorite retail ice cream chain. Despite production problems with some competitors that have led to an ice cream “shortage” in the northeast, your neighborhood Carvel® – where everything is hand made fresh in the shoppe – is fully stocked and ready to serve you. From the best soft-serve ice cream in the business and famous Carvel Flying Saucers to limited-time Girl Scout Cookie™ Sundae Dashers®, Carvel® is the place to cool off this summer.
When it comes to classic ice cream treats, it doesn’t get any better than a Carvel® Bonnet™. Watch as your soft-serve ice cream cone is hand dipped before your eyes in chocolate, or one of several new flavors, such as caramel, cotton candy, peanut butter and cake mix.
