If a coin toss between two brothers-in-law had gone the other way, this store would have been named what?
Fitch & Abercrombie
Noble & Barnes
Baskin-Robbins was founded by brothers-in-law, Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins. The story of this beloved ice cream chain began when Burt Baskin, the owner of Burton’s Ice Cream Shop, and Irv Robbins, the man behind Snowbird Ice Cream, decided to join forces. In 1945, they combined their ice cream businesses and named it Baskin-Robbins, with fate determining the order of their names through a coin toss. That year, the company introduced its “31 flavors” slogan, with the idea that a customer could have a different flavor every day of any month.
The correct answer is Robbins-Baskin.
