Hank’s Frozen Custard opened in 1948 by Hank Grosshans. They first introduced Mexican foods around 1960.
The artist’s palette sign was an original landmark, which signified all the flavors available.
Hank Grosshans is now deceased, and although his family is no longer involved, his custard-making legacy lives on.
The original stand was replaced around 2001 with a much more efficient building, including the freezers and coolers on the inside.
The custard is still made on the premises. Two of the four original Electro Freeze machines from 1950 are on display in the frozen custard room, but product is now made in a new machine, placed into service in 2008 (which is used daily).
There is also another Hank’s in Meadville, PA. They are no longer affiliated, but originally were brother-in-laws who shared the businesses.
