DB's Drive-in
Weedsport, NY
DB's Drive-in started out as a Tastee-Freez around the mid-1950s. The building's original plastic diamond pattern around the roof was gone by 2018. The blue glazed brick is still there. [map]

Frosty Boy K
Knightstown, IN
Straw Hat
Twin Lakes, WI
Frosty Boy K is another former Tastee-Freez with the blue brick and plastic diamonds. It was built as a Tastee-Freez in 1967. By the 1970s, it was known as Tastee Cream. I don't know when it became Frosty Boy K. Evidently, this stand is or was connected with the Pizza King and Frosty Boy chains. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. [map]

The Straw Hat was built in 1965 as a Tastee-Freez. This photo is from 2011. In 2012, the business became Tom's Straw Hat. The sign and building remain the same. [map]

Boz Hot Dogs [gone]
Griffith, IN
Boz Hot Dogs occupied this Tastee-Freez from the mid-1980s until it closed in 2013. By 2016, the building had been remodeled and was housing a drug store. The Boz Hot Dogs chain was founded in 1969. There is another old location in Hazel Crest, IL. [map]

Your Pizza Shop
Minerva, OH
Your Pizza Shop is a chain with 11 locations in Ohio and three in Florida. I doubt any of the other locations occupy a former Tastee-Freez. [map]

Wickenburg, AZ
This former Tastee-Freez in Fuquay-Varina now houses RJ's Place. [map]

This Tastee-Freez in Wickenburg appears to be new or remodeled. This sign with the Tee and Eff characters was probably a replacement panel. Those panels had been replaced by 2021 with signs reading "Tasty". [map]

former Tastee-Freez
Hickory Hills, IL
former Tastee-Freez
Tulsa, OK
This Tastee-Freez in Hickory Hills featured two, identical neon signs in the window. I have never seen them before and don't know how old they are. In 2015, this location closed and was put up for sale. By 2016, the building was housing the Chill N Grill Spot. Some of the diamond-shaped signs on the building were still there. The Tastee-Freez window sign was still there. By 2018, the building was housing the Aladdin's House, Indian-American Grill. The building now houses the Falafel House. The neon sign and diamond-shaped signs are gone. [map]

This Tastee-Freez in Tulsa has housed Hero's Subs & Burgers since at least 2007. [map]

Tasty Treat
East Lansing, MI
Tasty Treat opened here in 2011. Tasty Twist operated here from 1960-2011. The building and diamond-shaped signs show this was originally a Tastee-Freez. The angled roof and walk-up window seem to indicate that this was an earlier Tastee-Freez that was updated with the plastic signs later on. The building has been vacant since at least 2015. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Tastee-Freez [gone]
North Aurora, IL
This Tastee-Freez opened in 1967 and this sign was probably from then. The stand had been vacant since at least 2006. In 2010, the building was remodeled and reopened. By 2012, the stand was closed and the sign was gone. As far as I know, this was the only sign of its kind still on display. This location had reopened by 2014. By 2017, the building was housing Bruno's Cheesesteaks. [map]

former Tastee-Freez
Midlothian, IL
The former Goldsboro Tastee-Freez is an example of the company's sawtooth roof style building. This location is now known as the Sof-T-Shop. [map]

There is another one of these buildings in Goldsboro which now houses the Tasty Shoppe. [map]

This Tastee-Freez in Midlothian appeared to be closed when this photo was taken in 2009. The building was still vacant in 2016. The front of the building, where the walk-up window was, has been filled in. By 2017, the building was in use as a used car lot office. [map]

Olathe, KS
former Tastee-Freez (now Jaron's)

This Chilhowie Tastee-Freez still retained some of its plastic signage when these photos were taken in 2007. By 2013, the building was housing Jaron's. I assume these signs are gone. [map]
