Place of Origin
Maker Details Schrafft's was founded as a candy company by William F. Schrafft in Boston, in 1861. PET milk purchased Schrafft's in 1967, breaking the ice cream, restaurant and cake, and candy operations into separate companies. Only the ice cream line survives, having been purchased by the LeSauvage family, owners of several ice cream labels.
