Renaming[edit]

I'd like to get some consensus over the proper name of this article - Carvels certainly aren't restaurants. A suitable alternative could be Carvel (franchise), although it looks like there's no article labeled Carvel, instead being a disambig page. I'd think that Carvel should be moved to the page and the disambig page moved to Carvel (disambiguation).

A restaurant is an commercial retail establishment that serves prepared food for consumption on or off premises. That Carvel serves desserts doesn't mean they are not a restaurant. They are a specific subset of restaurant called an ice cream parlor. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 17:15, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
That's a very loose definition. And if you've ever been to a Carvel, you'd know that it isn't a restaurant. The Oxford definition is a far better citation:

A place where people pay to sit and eat meals that are cooked and served on the premises.Source

This is the proper definition of a restaurant. Carvel neither serves meals nor cooks food, with seating as a mere amenity, so it is therefore not a restaurant. "Ice cream parlor" is a decent term to describe a Carvel location, and is another option. Yet both Carvel (restaurant) and Carvel (ice cream parlor) mislead readers, as they appear to describe one location. The article text refers to the franchise of parlors, and thus Carvel (franchise) is by far the better option.--ɱ (talk) 18:20, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
