In 1932, Sherman Kelley vacationed in West Palm Beach and observed a young woman struggling while dipping ice cream.
He resolved to find a better way.
In 1933, Kelley developed the design for the Zeroll® Ice Cream Scoop, receives a patent and establishes the Zeroll Co. in 1935. The scoop has had no major changes since this time. The early success of The Zeroll Co. was stalled by World War II in the 1940’s. The aluminum needed to produce the scoops was diverted to wartime use, however, the Zeroll Co. was one of the first to obtain aluminum after the war. From humble beginnings in a garage, Zeroll continues to pioneer in the world of small wares for years to come introducing a full line of kitchen tools, dishers and dessert makers.
