After their selection, customers then watch as their creation is flash-frozen at -321 degrees Fahrenheit with liquid nitrogen right before their eyes.

Jerry and Naomi Hancock were always drawn to the idea of customizable food. They started their culinary career by opening a New York Burrito in Orem, Utah, which allowed their customers complete control over creating their meals. Jerry and Naomi wanted to provide that same freedom with desserts. Jerry used his chemistry background from Brigham Young University to develop a method of freezing ice cream using nothing more than liquid nitrogen (which comes from the air we breath). His technique was such a success, that in 2004 he opened Sub Zero Ice Cream in Orem, Utah. Since then, Sub Zero Ice Cream and Yogurt teamed with Franchise Foundry, turning a small, local business into a regional sensation. Locations can now be found throughout Utah, Arizona, Idaho, Washington and will soon be opening in California and other locations across the U.S.
