Greg’s Grandfather, Elton Kohr, came up with the idea of adding egg yolks to ice cream so it would not melt as fast. That is now known as Frozen Custard! Elton Kohr went on to open stores in Pennsylvania as well as the Jersey Shore. Asbury Park, Seaside Heights, Atlantic City and Point Pleasant all were homes to Kohr’s Frozen Custard. He also had locations in Maine, Delaware, Texas and California. Kohr’s Frozen Custard could also be found at 12 different fairs in Pennsylvania. Greg Kohr currently owns 3 stores in Seaside Heights, 1 in Seaside Park, 1 in Ortley Beach, and 1 in Lavallette, NJ.
