What: In celebration of Friendly's Co-Founder, Prestley Blake's 100th birthday, Friendly's is offering five-cent ice cream cones on Friday, November 28th from 2:00pm to close at several of its Springfield-area restaurants.
Prestley Blake, and younger brother Curtis Blake, opened their first "Friendly" neighborhood ice cream shop in 1935 and offered customers double-dip cones for five cents.

The iconic brand now offers homemade ice cream, signature sandwiches and burgers at over 300 Friendly's locations, while still maintaining its family-friendly values.
After a long day of Black Friday shopping, enjoy a classic single scoop ice cream cone in honor of the man who started it all.
