Strickland's Frozen Custard is an American ice cream chain, based in Akron, Ohio with 6 locations in Ohio and California. The chain was founded in 1936 by Bill and Florence Strickland of Akron.[1][2] Strickland's makes its ice cream fresh on-site daily, and generally serves only three or four flavors a day.[3][4] Despite the chain's name, Strickland's product does not contain egg yolks, and so is legally not frozen custard.[5] Rather, it is similar to soft-serve ice cream, but contains less air than typical soft-serve.[4]

The original Strickland's is still operating, and is located at 1809 Triplett Boulevard in Akron, in the same location as when it opened in 1936.[6]
