Happy Birthday Greta Anderson – About Greta Anderson, creator of Anderson’s Frozen Custard in Buffalo, NY
Carl and Greta Anderson opened the first Anderson’s Frozen Custard in the Bronx, New York in 1946. The pair became homesick for Buffalo and later opened their second custard stand on Kenmore Avenue in 1947. Known for their quality ingredients and hard work, the Anderson’s reputation in the community led to great success and a third, larger custard stand that remains today on Sheridan Drive in Buffalo, NY opened in 1953. The Sheridan Drive location has been remodeled over time, with many of the same elements including their iconic Anderson’s sign remaining even today.
In the mid-80’s, son and daughter Keith and Holly Anderson took over the family business that spawned 6 Erie County locations and a franchise location in Lockport, NY. The brother and sister of original owner’s Carl and Greta Anderson continue to run the family business today together with their team of store managers and service members across all 6 locations.
Anderson’s Frozen Custard is famous for our all-natural Roast Beef on Weck, Signature Frozen Custard and Handmade Hard Ice Cream. Today, the Anderson’s menu has grown to include handmade ice cream cakes, comfort foods such as macaroni & cheese and mashed potatoes, and specialty handmade ice creams like Graham Cracker Crunch, Watson’s Sponge Candy, and so much more!
