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!

PRESS RELEASE:  ANDERSON’S ICE CREAM DEPARTMENT – RECALL OF PUMKPIN ICE CREAM PIE PRODUCT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  Nov. 22, 2016

 Anderson’s Frozen Custard Inc., issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Peanuts in Pumpkin Ice Cream Pies.

Anderson’s Frozen Custard Inc., is recalling its “Pumpkin Ice Cream Pies” because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

Giving & Creating Smiles to the Kids in WNY

Giving & Creating Smiles!Michaela Organizes Toy Drive

This is our Mission each day at Anderson’s.  We are proud of our teammates who are committed to serving our guests by that mission when they are at work.  We also have been honored to work with  many teammates who choose to exemplify this mission in their daily lives, outside of Anderson’s.

One such Mission Maker is Michaela Kowalick, an alumni Guest Server from our West Amherst store. In 2007 she singlehandedly started a Toy Drive in her neighborhood for the Christmas holiday. She couldn’t envision what it would be like to have a child wake up on the holiday and not have a new toy to open and enjoy.  She created flyers, knocked on doors and rallied friends, family and neighbors to support her mission.  The toy drive has become an annual project and has over the last 6 years, donated hundreds of toys to Women’s  & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, Haven House, & St Christopher’s Outreach, Tonawanda.

This is our 4th year partnering with Michaela in the Toy Drive which will benefit area children via the Western New York Heroes program.  The mission of the WNY Heroes is to provide veterans, members of the armed services, and widows & children of deceased veterans with access to essential services, resources and support.  In the last 4 years, our awesome guests have donated over  2400 toys to the kids!!

We are asking you, our guest to please help us again this year in Giving & Creating Smiles to these WNY children this holiday  season.      Please consider donating a new, unwrapped Toy appropriate for ages 12 and under.         

 It will be our pleasure to give to you a Dessert Dollar certificate as a thank you for donating a toy.  

Toys will be collected at our 6 Erie County Anderson’s locations Nov 12 thru December 8.

70th Anniversary

We are looking forward to celebrating our 70th year with you this year!

Did you know that we began in 1946 in the Bronx, NY?  Carl and Greta Anderson began our legacy with a small frozen custard shop on White Plains Blvd.  While they loved the business and serving folks in NYC they both were homesick for friends & family from Buffalo!   A short while after that promising beginning they moved to Kenmore Avenue to serve guests in WNY.  Did you know that the building was modeled after the NYC store which was built close to the road (because so may in NYC walk everywhere instead of driving.)  The Anderson’s found out that in Buffalo, we like our cars and frozen custard!   It was after a short season on Kenmore Ave that Carl and Greta moved to a country location on Sheridan Drive with lots of parking available for all the cool looking cars!  ….. and well, the rest as they say ….is history!

We will be planning some fun celebrations this summer to celebrate our 70 years in business and to show our appreciation to you our guests and our teammates!  Cheers!!
