Celebrate and Give Back

& Give Back

Our commitment to the communities we serve is carried out through a promise that Friendly’s be a heart-warming place for customers to create lasting memories while enjoying handcrafted ice cream and delicious food. We also give back to various local organizations with events and donations throughout the year as part of our Acts of Friendly’sness program. Through “Deliciously Celebrated,” we seek to reward actions that make the world a friendlier place, one scoop at a time. We invite you – our community members – to help us identify those who deserve to be recognized.

Deliciously Celebrated

Friendly's, as part of its commitment to the communities it serves, is calling on its patrons to nominate their friends and neighbors who are going above and beyond to give back to their own communities, or - as we like to say, carrying out "Acts of Friendly'sness." Through this program, called Deliciously Celebrated, Friendly’s fulfills its promise to be a heart-warming place for customers to create lasting memories while handcrafted ice cream and delicious food.
