Friendly's was founded in 1935 in Springfield, Massachusetts by two young brothers, 18-year-old Curtis Blake and 20-year-old S. Prestley Blake, their first shop only served double-dip cones for 5 cents. Many Friendly's have an old-fashioned street clock at the entrance of the restaurant with the name of the town, although newer and renovated stores do not have these.
