About Us

MarbleSlab 02

Since 1983, Marble Slab Creamery® has been a leading purveyor of chef created, super-premium, hand-mixed ice cream. Originally, the franchise was invented by chefs Penn and LaPage, who changed the way we enjoy frozen dessert with the ability to create your own concoction. Their "Frozen Slab" was the first and the original.

Our stores make all ice cream fresh on premises in small batches, using dairy from local farms and premium ingredients from around the world. For mixins, we offer some of the freshest fruits, the finest nuts, the sweetest candies and the most delicious cookies available. We hand roll and bake our waffle cones on-site. Our customers run the show, creating a playful, fun experience with every visit!
