We are friendly people! Our team is filled with great people who are optimistic, fun and always act with integrity. When it comes to our guests, our number one priority is to provide them with a great experience every time they visit.

We also take great pride in dishing up support for the families in our community. Our greatest passion is in supporting family-friendly charities like Easter Seals and the Boys and Girls Club. We also hosts Friendly's FUNraisers for other charitable causes.

Year after year, we strive to be the best Friendly’s we can be, because we owe it to our guests, and to our team.

In Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1935, two spunky brothers, 20 year old Prestley and 18 year old Curtis Blake open a modest neighborhood ice cream shoppe with double-dip cones for 5 cents. The young entrepreneurs name the business "Friendly" with the intention of providing warm, caring, neighborly service to all who visit.

For more than 75 years, Friendly’s has been home to fun times and delicious meals. We are proud to be a place where family and friends gather to create great memories. And we continue to work hard every day to make those memories even better, because that’s what Friendly’s is all about.
