Get to Know Us
The Lazy Cow Ice Cream Parlor was founded in June 2020, right in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. The founder, Amanda Franklin, felt that the world needed something to smile about during this time and couldn’t think of a better way to bring joy to our community than to add a much-needed ice cream parlor. Through the challenges of the build-out and COVID-19, Amanda and her husband pushed until they had their Grand Opening on September 20, 2020 – and what a success it was!
Amanda's vision for The Lazy Cow is to build a brand recognized for it's delicious ice cream and wonderful guest experience.
