Ray’s Ice Cream began in 1958, when it was founded by Raymond and Bernice Stevens and their son Dale as a neighborhood ice cream parlor and soda fountain with a focus on quality products and friendly service. Over the years, Dale carried on the family tradition as company president, joined by his brother Raymond Jr. Third generation grandson Tom Stevens is now president. A number of great-grandchildren now work at the family business as well (schoolwork permitting, of course!).
Today, Ray’s remains a local favorite for its premium ice cream products and gourmet ice cream desserts, also supplying a number of area retailers and restaurants, and country clubs both here in southeast Michigan and across the country. The family takes great pride in preserving its well-earned reputation, which shows in Ray’s Ice Cream consistently being voted among metro Detroit’s best.
