As the innovator of the ‘frozen slab’ method, Marble Slab Creamery provides a fun, lively, and interactive gourmet ice cream experience for customers. Our secret ingredients are: chef-inspired proprietary recipes; fresh products made in store; and customers’ tailor-made ice cream creations with ‘mixins’ (fruit, candy, nuts). Marble Slab’s refined system creates a rewarding business opportunity that drives value and consistency to inspire profitability and customer loyalty.

THE BRAND
Originating in Houston, Texas in 1983, Marble Slab Creamery introduced the “frozen slab” ice cream concept to Canada in 2003 in Calgary, Alberta. Today we have stores coast to coast in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Yukon and Nova Scotia!

All of our products are made fresh in store with Real Canadian Dairy. We offer more than 50 flavours of ice cream and 30 mixins – fruits, nuts, candies, chocolates and cookies – that add that extra something special to your treat! We even bake and hand-roll our waffle cones on location!

The Marble Slab Creamery brand offers:
• Customizable ice cream and low-fat yogurt, made fresh in each store from our own proprietary recipe.
• Fresh-baked cones in a variety of flavours made in view of the customer.
