About Sub Zero Ice Cream & Yogurt
With over a trillion combinations, there is no palate they can't satisfy. Sub Zero Ice Cream and Yogurt makes your dessert when you order, giving you the freedom to customize each and every ingredient to fit your craving. Thanks to their state of the art flash freezing process, you receive the freshest, smoothest ice cream possible. You don not need a degree in molecular gastronomy to taste the difference.
Jerry and Naomi Hancock were always drawn to the idea of customizable food. They started their culinary career by opening a New York Burrito in Orem, Utah, which allowed their customers complete control over creating their meals. Jerry and Naomi wanted to provide that same freedom with desserts. Jerry used his chemistry background from Brigham Young University to develop a method of freezing ice cream using nothing more than liquid nitrogen (which comes from the air they breath). His technique was such a success, that in 2004 he opened Sub Zero Ice Cream in Orem, Utah. Since then, Sub Zero Ice Cream and Yogurt teamed with Five Star Franchising, turning a small, local business into a regional sensation. Locations can now be found throughout Utah, Arizona, Idaho, Washington and will soon be opening in California and other locations across the U.S.
