Tom's Ice Cream Bowl was originally founded in 1948 by Jack Hemmer and Tom Mirgon in Zanesville, Ohio. It is well-known for its homemade ice cream products and comfort foods. Working under Mr. Mirgon, Mr. Baker learned the ins and outs of the business and now supplies almost 97% of the business' ice cream - an impressive feat considering he has produced over 800,000 gallons since 1977!

Mr. Baker credits his success to his hardworking parents who instilled a strong work ethic in him from an early age. He is proud to have had his business featured as the number one ice cream spot in a national newspaper and to have kept it running throughout the COVID-19 pandemic despite all odds.
