The original Carvel store was owned by a Abdol Faghihi?

Shouldn't be a surprise. Carvel is a thieving-hungry franchise. The parent company also sells directly to BJ Wholesale, Costco, Waldbaums, and others. These sales should be restricted only to the established franchises.

I believe that Carvel location was on a show on the Food Network about soft serve ice cream...

Ever since Tom Carvel sold out to a Japanese concern, it hasn't been the same...

The store that splits Route 347 and 454 has been there for ages; I hope that stays around

I know that but that wasn't my point. The point I meant to make was that such an important part of Americana was owned by an obviously non-American named person. Maybe I'd better quit while I'm ahead, otherwise I'm get a beatin on here.

Nobody gets beaten up on Tuesdays in October when there's a full moon occuring after a leap year.

Wait a minute, today is Monday. Put up your dukes.

Yeah, everyone knows that only names like Smith, Jones, and Washington are real American names.

Sorry, you were never "ahead" of anything. Tom Carvel was born in Greece as Thomas Carvelas. So any comment about the un-Americanness of the current owner's name is ridiculous.
