The first Frostop root beer stand was opened in 1926 in Springfield, Ohio by L.S. Harvey. A chain of franchise locations was established, with the biggest growth following World War II. The Frostop drive-ins reached their peak in 1958 with locations concentrated mostly in the American midwest and deep south, but found from New York and Florida to California and Washington state.
Frostop brand products—Root Beer, Sarsaparilla, Red Birch Beer, Orange Cream, and a Creme Brulee-style soda—are still distributed in supermarkets and convenience stores in California, Iowa, Idaho,Indiana Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin. Although not as numerous as in their 1950s and 1960s heyday, Frostop drive-in franchises can still be found scattered across America.
