Original Frozen Custard

Summer Traditions

is what frozen custard is all about

About Us

Our family history goes all the
way back to the frozen
custard mix we use.

The frozen custard we serve is one-of-a-kind because it is made from a secret custard mix created at the very start of the Original Frozen Custard by Charles Kirkhoff, the original founder and the grandfather of the owners today. He used his experience as Mix Master at Frankfort Ice Cream Company to develop the original recipe we all know and love

The Original Frozen
Custard in Lafayette, IN

has been a tradition in the Lafayette, Indiana community since 1932. From serving only vanilla custard that very first year to having a full menu of food, drink and dessert options today, our family has been proud to provide high-quality service throughout it all. We are not just another ice cream shop. We are a homemade frozen custard shop with decades of history and experience.

For us, frozen custard is more
than just a sweet treat.

It is the passion and trade of four generations of our family. From the time when our grandparents opened the store to the fifth generation in training right now, our shop across from Columbian Park has become a destination and tradition for families near and far. Even those who move away still come back to visit for some frozen custard and fruit drink when they get the chance.

The Original Frozen Custard was built on tradition, quality and service.

That is why everything down to the fruit toppings and chocolate syrup is homemade right here in our shop. Our quality service, fresh ingredients, and original recipe have made our store a staple for the Lafayette, Indiana community.

we hand make everything in our shop to ensure quality and flavor
