Marble Slab Creamery History

specializing in super-premium ice cream with the finest ingredients since 1983

Originally, the franchise was invented by chefs Penn and LaPage, who changed the way we enjoy frozen dessert with the ability to create your own concoction. Their “Frozen Slab” was the first, the original, and soon they began franchising this concept. In 1986, one of the first franchisees built a franchising concept that provided other franchisees a comprehensive business venture. In August of 2010, Global Franchise Group, LLC acquired Marble Slab Creamery. We now have more than 350 open stores around the world.
