About Hibbard's Frozen Custard

Hibbards Original Frozen Custard is a one of a kind located in Lewiston, New York. Stop by and try the best soft, creamy custard in Western New York! Treat yourself to some delicious frozen custard!

Hibbard’s Original Frozen Custard has been family owned and seasonally operated since 1939. Harold Hibbard Senior’s desire to start the business was born after a chance encounter with fresh made custard in the mid-thirties. Mr. Hibbard saw value in the delicious product and brought that value to his hometown. Four generations later, Hibbard’s still has the pleasure of serving the Village of Lewiston and surrounding areas.


Three generations hence and after years of recipe refinement we have what we, as well as many thousands of Western New Yorkers believe, is the best frozen custard available anywhere. Today our custard mix is produced by a  dairy farm creamery in the southern tier of WNY and is a special French Vanilla Custard blend made much like our Grandfather Harold’s original “all natural” mix formula made in the 1930s and 1940s, before preservatives were even invented.  Our Vanilla flavoring is still made exclusively from a recipe patented by Harold in the early years and is still produced under our exclusive label, “Hibbard’s Special Three Star Essence” which is made from the finest imported large Madagascar Vanilla Bean.

It is this commitment to quality that has madeHibbard’s Original Frozen Custarda favorite Western New York tradition for 80 years and a perennial favorite in Buffalo Spree magazines’ Best of WNY contest.
