Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream prepares to open location in Utah Valley

There’s a reason it has been voted as the best ice cream and Utah County is about ready to taste it for themselves.

Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream will be opening its second Utah location on May 6, in Lehi.

“Handel’s makes their ice cream daily in every store, which means you can taste the freshness and see the quality ingredients,” said John Ogden who is one of the partners.

“We’re so excited to be bringing the best ice cream in the world to our friends and neighbors.”

There are 48 flavors available daily and more than 150 flavors that rotate seasonally, so there is always something for every person to love.

Handel’s also offers sherbets, ices and fat free with no sugar added ice cream options. The owners and managers of the Lehi store know the ins and outs of the Handel’s franchise.

Despite the young age of the owner’s, Cole (25) and Rachel Kesler (21), they know how to put smiles on customer’s faces with friendly customer service and quality homemade ice cream.

Cole Kesler’s parents currently own three Handel’s locations in Southern California, which has allowed him and his wife to open a store at such a young age.

James Brown, the CEO of Handel’s had this to say; “We receive hundreds of franchise requests a year. We don’t grant a franchise; we firmly believe we gift the franchise. It is done with the utmost consideration. The ownership group in Lehi comes from a solid family. They represent the finest in people and we have no doubt they will do the same regarding our brand. Utah County will be thrilled in our decision to open in Lehi.”

This store is located at 1249 East, Main Street #110 in Lehi. Just off the Lehi Main Street I-15 off-ramp.

The second location will be in Orem, and open at the beginning of September.

Handel’s was started in 1945 in Youngstown, Ohio by Alice Handel in her husband’s gas station. (Serve Daily submission.)
