IRV & BURT (continued): • Irv’s father owned an ice cream store in Tacoma, Washington, and Irv often helped out. After World War II, he decided to open his own ice cream shop in Glendale, California. Meanwhile, Irv’s sister married a man named Burt, who was in the men’s clothing business. Irv convinced his brother-in-law that selling ice cream was a lot more fun than selling suits. So Burt opened an ice cream parlor in Pasadena. • Together they worked to invent new flavors, until they had one flavor for every day of the month. By 1948 Irv owned five ice cream shops and Burt owned three. By this time they realized they were paying less and less attention to each individual store, so they decided to combine their efforts and sell the shops to the store managers in a franchising operation. What should they name their franchise? • They decided to use their last names, so Irv and Burt flipped a coin to see whose name would be first. By 1949 they had 43 stores; there were more than 100 running by 1960; and in 1967 when they sold out to United Fruit Company for $12 million, they had around 500. Burt died six months later, but Irv remained involved in the company until he retired in 1978. By the time Irv died in 2008, what started with a single ice cream parlor in California was now the world’s largest chain of ice cream stores with 5,500 outlets worldwide. What were Burt and Irv’s last names? Answer at the bottom of the page. FAVORITE FLAVORS • Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry are the three favorite flavors, in order. Vanilla accounts for 51% of all ice cream sold, chocolate 13.5%, and strawberry 6%. Among sherbets, orange captures 40% of the market. Together there are over 1,000 flavors of ice cream.
