From the Braum's Website:
"Braum’s Ice Cream and Dairy Stores…just the name conjures up visions of scrumptious ice cream, giant hamburgers, dairy fresh milk, fresh baked goods, even meats, fruits and vegetables. So what’s the story behind Braum’s? Well, we can sum it up with two words “vertical integration”. Basically it means that we believe that if you want something done right…you do it yourself. A concept that Founders, Bill and Mary Braum and their children are proud of.

It all Began with Peter Pan…
Well, it actually began over three decades before Peter Pan Ice Cream Stores when in 1933 Bill Braum’s father, Henry H. Braum, purchased a small butter processing plant located in his hometown of Emporia, Kansas. Throughout his life, son, Bill Braum worked with his father learning, growing and expanding his family’s ice cream and dairy business – a business that eventually became “Peter Pan Ice Cream Stores” named after the local park in Emporia. But there is so much more to know. Follow us through 80 years of history – a history as rich and flavorful as the ice cream itself." Text Source: (visit link)
