    Farrell's 50th Anniversary Celebration


      Bob and Ramona Farrell, founders of Farrell’s, reminisce with their favorite shakes at Farrell’s Brea. Photo courtesy of Susan Gaede.


        Farrell’s is turning 50 on Friday, September 13, 2013! To celebrate their great milestone they’re offering four of their original sundaes at the store opening prices on September 13, 1963. Choose from a Farrell’s Banana Split at 75 cents, Straw-ana at 70 cents, Banana Royal at 75 cents and Black and White at 65 cents, with the purchase of an adult entrée.

          It all started when Bob Farrell wanted to take his steady, Ramona, to an old fashioned ice cream parlour, but there were none around. So what did he do when faced with a dilemma? Bob opened his own old fashioned ice cream parlour. It went over quite well as he and Ramona married and the rest is history!

            Turning 50? You’ll be pinned with a free Farrell’s 50 year anniversary pin.
