Loard’s Ice Cream was founded in 1950 by Russ Salyards and Keegan Low to make and serve premium ice cream. With their fanatical commitment to quality ingredients, great taste and friendly service, Loard’s quickly became an award winning, local favorite in communities around the bay area. Community involvement is a key part of our corporate culture. Loard’s donates more than 3% of annual profits to charity. We still make our ice cream by hand and rely on the best ingredients to make great tasting desserts to delight our customers.
