former Tastee-Freez (now Rockingham Dairy Freez)
Davenport, IA
This Tastee-Freez was built in 1954 and was the last operating Tastee-Freez in Iowa. The neon signs were lit at night. These photos are from 2010. This place closed in 2011 and the signs were removed. In 2012, it reopened as the Rockingham Dairy Freez. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]

The former Tastee-Freez in La Porte City later housed Tastee Treats. In 2009, when this photo was taken, it became Union Station. The building now houses Tootsie's Ice Cream & More. [map]

former Tastee-Freez
Pocatello, ID
This former Tastee-Freez now houses Tastee Treet. The building was been drastically altered or rebuilt. This sign was originally displayed on the roof. It was obviously adapted for the name change. These photos are from 2014. By 2018, the sign on the ground had either been repainted or the top layer of paint removed to reveal the original name. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

former Tastee-Freez
Boise, ID
This former Tastee-Freez now houses Fanci Freez. The sign boasts that it has been here since 1947. However, Tastee-Freez wasn't established until 1950. The owners don't know where the date came from either or when the business became Fanci Freez. Perhaps Fanci Freez was located elsewhere and then moved to this 1950s era building? Around 2006, the sign was repainted and an LED message board was added. These photos are from 2014. For more, see this website. [map]

This former Tastee-Freez location has gone through some significant changes in recent years. The walk-up window portion of the building was enclosed by 2007. The rooftop sign disappeared sometime after that. By 2014, the business was known as D&D's Place. For more, see this website. [map]

Chicago, IL
The first former Tastee-Freez location shown on the left above evidently had a rooftop sign originally. This pole sign was a later addition. I believe this stand was built in 1951. In 2016, this stand became The Freeze and the sign panel was changed. [map]

The second former Tastee-Freez shown above housed Shelly's Freeze for many years. This photo is from 2010. Around 2021, the building began housing Rainbow Tacos. [map]

This former Tastee-Freez in West Chicago was built in 1955. In 2017, the Tastee-Freez lettering on the rooftop sign was covered up. By 2018, the stand had reopened as The Freeze. By 2021, the business had become Jalapeno Burgers and the sign was repainted. [map]

Tastee-Freez
Spring Valley, IL
This Tastee-Freez was probably built in the 1950s. It has obviously been remodeled quite a bit. The plastic sign on the right is probably from the 1960s or 1970s. The neon sign on the left is probably newer than that. [map]
