Bridgemans Ice Cream History

In 1936, after helping with their Dad’s dairy business Chester and Roy Bridgeman decided to strike out on their own and opened the original Bridgeman's Ice Cream Shoppe®. Their adventure was met with disbelief. Why would anyone open an ice cream shoppe in Minnesota? What about the Depression? But with hard work, persistence and of course, Bridgeman’s Ice Cream, they opened not only one, but six Bridgeman Ice Cream Shoppes® in eighteen months.
