In 1917, a school teacher from York, PA named Archie Kohr purchased a locally made ice cream machine that was powered by a gasoline engine. He and his younger brothers, Elton and Lester, wanted to expand the dairy business they ran from the family’s farm. The fresh homemade ice cream was a popular addition to the milk delivered door to door by the Kohr brothers’ horse-drawn wagon. They experimented with the recipe. It now had less fat and less sugar for a smoother, lighter product.
Today, like then, Kohr Bros.® Original Frozen Custard is lower in fat and sugar than ice cream. Archie Kohr’s original recipe is still produced under the watchful eye of the Kohr family.
