Jack and Jill Ice Cream Truck in Kentlands, Maryland

Jack and Jill Ice Cream Company was founded by Max Schwarz in 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Schwarz sold ice cream he carried through the streets of Philadelphia. In 1936, the company purchased its first ice cream truck for selling ice cream. In addition to trucks, the company also sells ice cream to restaurants and catering services, in stores, and in vending machines throughout Philadelphia, Baltimore, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Richmond, Norfolk, Virginia, and recently acquired Roanoke, Virginia.

Jack and Jill is credited with creating and launching the Choco Taco, which it later sold to Good Humor-Breyers.[1]

The company is named for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme.
