Carvel Ice Cream Invites Customers To Take A Sundae Drive

(Friday, June 03, 2005) - Carvel Ice Cream, the nation's first retail ice cream franchise, is dashing into summer with another sweet idea - sundaes packaged in clear, portable cups called Sundae Dashers. Available at all participating Carvel locations, these delicious new sundaes come in six flavorful varieties: Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, White Raspberry Truffle, Bananas Foster, Banana Split, and Chocolate Covered Strawberry.

All sundaes contain Carvel's hand dipped ice cream, made fresh daily in all franchise locations. The Banana Split and Chocolate Covered Strawberry are also available with Carvel's Thinny Thin No Fat ice cream.

"We are very excited about what Sundae Dashers can do for our long-term brand growth strategies," said Steve Romaniello, president and CEO of FOCUS Brands Inc., parent company of Carvel. "For the past 71 years, we have continuously provided our loyal customers with a wide variety of high quality ice cream treats, and the addition of the new Sundae Dasher line allows our guests yet another delicious way to enjoy 'America's Freshest Ice Cream'."

"Our guests love the flavors and convenience of this new product line," added West Paterson, NJ franchisee Irene Macones. "The Sundae Dasher's delicious presentation appeals to all ages, and many guests have dashed back time and again for their new favorite treat."
