Open Since 1938, Gilles Frozen Custard Is Wisconsin’s Oldest Continuously Operating Fast Food Restaurant

A lot has changed since the 1930s, but not everything. For instance, Gilles Frozen Custard is still doling out fast food eats and sweet treats, just as it’s been doing since 1938. With more than 80 years under its belt, it takes the title of the state’s “oldest, continuously operating fast food restaurant.”
