    6 years ago by

    Hey everybody, Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour is celebrating America’s favorite doll, Barbie! She is turning 54 years old but still looks 24! Join Barbie and Ken look-alikes this Saturday, March 9, from 10-11:00 a.m. for a fun filled morning at Farrell’s, with a special Barbie inspired pink 30-scoop – 5 ½ lb. ice cream Zoo. Kids will sing along to a birthday song especially created to honor Barbie and best yet, kids get to eat the Zoo for free and receive birthday presents as well.


      For guests that can’t make it to the 10am main birthday event, Farrell’s will be celebrating all day by selling a pink $1.99 birthday-sundae to all guests that bring in their favorite Barbie doll and purchase a kids or adult entrée and drink. The special $1.99 birthday sundae is fashioned from one scoop of strawberry ice cream, strawberry sauce, pink whipped cream, party sprinkles and a cherry on top.

        “Barbie is America’s favorite doll. She’s an original piece of Americana and takes all of us back to the fond memories of our childhood, just like Farrell’s.” says Michael Fleming, CEO, Parlour Enterprises, Inc. “This was a great opportunity to celebrate an American icon, but even more so, it was just a great excuse to have a lot of fun.”

    Brea has had a treat this past week, as Bob Farrell, the founder of Farrell's, has been visiting and helping out with operations at the Brea location! Farrell's installed a plaque in his honor also at the front today and Mayor Schweitzer was on hand to give a proclamation from the city. Many helped unveil the plaque in front of Farrell's, along with Brea management staff and Brea community members, Paul Kramer, President, and Michael Fleming, CEO of Parlour Enterprises, Inc. Bob and his wife Ramona were at the ceremony and posed for pictures with customers and staff members alike after the ceremony. Bob said that he loves Brea Downtown and that this is his first visit to the location. He said that Farrell's is "customer oriented." Kramer said that Farrell's is living up to the standards Bob put in place almost 50 years ago, in fact, which is evident by the line that was waiting outside to come in.
