Braum’s was founded in 1968 by Mary and Bill Braum of Tuttle, Oklahoma. The company operates a chain of casual burger restaurants, small grocery stores, and ice cream shops in Oklahoma.
As of late 2013, the company had 128 stores in Oklahoma, 13 in Missouri, 13 in Arkansas, 99 in Texas and 27 in Kansas. Since all goods are made or grown fresh at the farm in Tuttle, the company will not open a location that is more than 300 miles from the farm, in order to ensure freshness.
The Braum family owns 8 farms, with a total of 40,000 acres. It is the only ice cream maker in America which owns the cows that provide the cream for their products.
