The History of Basken Robbins

Burton “Burt” Baskin and Irvine “Irv” Robbins were brother in laws who had a vision about family, fun and old fashioned ice cream. In 1945 the pair each had their own individual ice cream shops;  Irv’s Snowbird Ice Cream and Burt’s Burton Ice Cream Shop, and by 1948 they had 6 stores between them.  This is where the concept of Baskin-Robbins eventually grew.  In 1953 their dropped their separate names and became one.

The 31 logo was developed to represent the idea of a different flavour for every day of the month.

Since 1945 over 1000 unique flavours have been created with Pralines ‘n Cream and Chocolate Mint being the top sellers.  Baskin-Robbins is visited each year by over 300 million ice cream lovers.
