Baskin-Robbins is a chain of ice cream parlors founded by Burton Baskin and Irvine Robbins in 1945 in Glendale, California. It claims to be "the world's largest ice cream franchise", with more than 5,600 locations, 2,800 of which are located in the United States. When Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins began making ice cream, their mission was to create delicious ice cream concoctions with loads of ingredients and fanciful names. Since then, over 1,000 different Baskin Robbins ice cream flavors have been created and enjoyed by ice cream lovers everywhere.
From the initial concept of 31 flavors - one for every day of the month - Baskin-Robbins has become the largest chain of ice cream stores in the world. Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins also believed people should be able to try any flavor without cost - a belief that led to the iconic pink spoons. Their ideals live on at Baskin-Robbins, a flavor library that consists of more than 1,000 ice cream recipes. In addition to developing flavors, Baskin-Robbins has always been a leader in the ice cream industry with innovations such as hand-packed quarts of ice cream, a unique flavor ribbon technique, the use of traditional dessert ingredients such as apple pie and cheesecake, and the introduction of mousse-textured Baskin Robbins ice cream.
The commitment of Baskin-Robbins to creating new products is evident with the introduction of signature Baskin Robbins ice cream cakes and the growing line of beverages, including Bold Breezes, and the Cappuccino Blast® frozen-blended coffee drinks, which innovated the frozen coffee category in 1994. Baskin-Robbins attempted to break the Guinness Book of World Records mark for the World's Largest Ice Cream Sculpture with this 6,000-pound scoop at the 60th Birthday party on September 13, 2005 at corporate headquarters.
