Fosters Freeze has been a California tradition since the mid 1940's. The Fosters story begins in 1946 when George Foster opened the first Fosters Freeze in Inglewood, California. He introduced the soft serve cone and a line of soft serve desserts.
The unique product became so popular that he opened a chain of restaurants. As California grew, so did the Fosters concept. Made-to-order hamburgers, fries and other food items were added to the menu.
Fosters Freeze truly could be described as California's first fast-food chain!
We represent California Positivity. We are authentic people with unwavering cheerfulness and wholesomeness. We try to make the world a better place for everyone - even if it's just for a moment. We promote our belief that simple pleasures are the key to happiness.
To make people happy by providing some of life's simple pleasures - nothing ritzy - just the regular everyday happiness that Californian sunshine and ice cream brings.
Fosters Freeze was born in an era when food was wholesome, when everything was built to last and luckily for us, just when soft-serve ice cream was invented!
So much has changed over the past 70 years - our famous chocolate-dipped soft-serve is now offered alongside a delicious menu of burgers, sandwiches, shakes and desserts all made to order with revitalized recipes for today’s generation - but one thing is as true today as it was in 1946 when George Foster opened his first Fosters Freeze in Inglewood, California - his belief that simple pleasures like sunshine and ice cream, are the key to happiness. Today we remain true to George's old fashion theory of happiness. We work hard to support our local communities wherever we are, in ways consistent with our philosophy. We always aim to provide a taste of that sweet Californian sunshine and put a smile on the face of every customer who drops in.
