This sign, is in Excellent/Very Good (Exl/VG) condition overall with a medium sized ding in the lower right corner of the sign, and also some scuffing at the top left edge.

Ward's Ice Cream, founded in 1949 by David Ward in Bismarck, North Dakota, has a rich history steeped in tradition and dedication to quality. The company started as a small ice cream shop with a focus on homemade, handcrafted ice cream using only the finest ingredients.

David Ward's commitment to excellence quickly gained attention, and Ward's Ice Cream became a beloved local institution. As the demand for their delicious ice cream grew, Ward's expanded its operations, opening additional locations throughout North Dakota and neighboring states.

One of the key factors contributing to Ward's success was its unwavering commitment to quality. The company continued to produce ice cream using traditional methods, emphasizing freshness and flavor. Ward's also maintained close ties with the local community, sourcing ingredients locally whenever possible and actively participating in community events.

Over the years, Ward's Ice Cream continued to innovate, introducing new flavors and products while staying true to its roots. Despite facing competition from larger ice cream brands, Ward's remained a favorite among locals, cherished for its homemade taste and nostalgic appeal.

In recent years, Ward's Ice Cream has expanded its reach further, leveraging online platforms and modern distribution channels to bring its products to a wider audience. However, the company remains true to its heritage, still handcrafting its ice cream in small batches and upholding the principles of quality and excellence established by David Ward over seven decades ago.
