Our Story

Janine’s Frostee was established in 1956 by Raymond and Lydia Millier. In 1976 Janine’s Frostee was sold to Henry J Morrissette. He and his wife Germaine, along with the help of their 5 children decided to embark on a food service career, ownership of Ware’s own Janine’s Frostee. In the first 20 years of being open for business, Janine’s developed quite a loyal following of customers. The Morrissettes had the same kind of business plan in mind.

Year after year went by and the menu kept on growing. More choices, better quality, and friendly service were among the every day standards. As each year passed, the family strove to take the business to new levels of excellence, all the while keeping the same family values that were instilled from the beginning.

In 2005 Henry sold “The Frostee” to his son Roger. Being the ambitious young man he is, Roger welcomed the challenge to continue this “Family Tradition”. With the addition of an Annual Car Show, various charitable events throughout the season, radio promotions & live broadcasts, a “Frostee Jingle”, daily specials, and now a Senior Citizen Discount Day, Roger has taken “The Frostee” to new heights.

That’s why people say… “Janine’s Frostee is worth the drive from anywhere!”
