Kohr Brothers on the Ocean Boardwalk at 9th Street


Back in 1919, three brothers Archie, Clair and Elton Kohr were selling dairy products door to door at homes and restaurants originally out of the back of a horse drawn wagon and later out of the back of a Model "T" panel truck.

A year later they purchased one of the first ice cream custard machines in the world called the "Meisenhelter Ice Cream Freezer"

In 1920, they brothers set up a small booth on Coney Island. The business was an instant success.

Incorporating eggs inimproved recipe with the use of their new machine, they created a light and fluffy product that "tasted just like a custard" - the first and the Original frozen custard.

Over the years the business grew, but in 1923 Elton D. Kohr decided to branch off on his own and started his own chain. He opened his first store in Atlantic City in 1924 calling it Kohr’s Frozen Custard and grew his enterprise impressively and soon after he started locations in Ocean City.

Kohr Brothers frozen custard has been boardwalk tradition in Ocean City for more than 50 years!
