A family business since 1952, Twentieth Century Bowling Lanes in Hyde Park was originally a combination bowling alley on the first floor and an 18 table pool hall in the basement started by Ron’s father, Julius.
Julius ran the business with Ron’s help until 1976 when Ron took over the operation. Ron being a great lover of food always wanted to add something to his hot dog and soft serve ice cream business. The opportunity came from a mistake by the Hood Milk company who sent the wrong ice cream mix to the alley in the early 1980s. This mistake proved to be just the spark Ron needed to go after the emerging market of quality ice cream. After a few years of tinkering with the recipes, his hard work paid off. The dense, high quality ice cream was voted one of the World’s Best Ice Creams by National Geographic Magazine in 2007.
In 1999 with his son Jay in college studying business, the opportunity came about to own a second location which he has now proudly owned for the last 20 years. Once Jay graduated from Bryant College (pictured here at graduation) he has jumped in to continue the hard work and dedication needed to bring Ron’s into the future of family entertainment!
