Sherman Kelly vacations in West Palm Beach and observed a young woman struggling while scooping ice cream. He resolved to find a better way.
Kelley develops the design for the Zeroll® Ice Cream Scoop and receives a patent.
The early success of The Zeroll Co. was stalled by World War II. The aluminium needed to produce the scoops was diverted to wartime use and the business was virtually dormant for several years.
The Zeroll Co. was one of the first to obtain aluminium after the war.
Sherman Kelley passes away, and his son Ralph takes over. Ralph moves the company to Maumee, Ohio and changed its name to Roll Dippers, Inc. This was a slow period for the company!
The Funka brothers purchased it in 1968. Tom and Art Funka enjoyed the challenge of turning The Zeroll Co. back into the successful business it once was. The company was moved back to Toledo, and the name changed back to The Zeroll Co.
The Zerolon® line of scoops was developed. The Original TubMate® Spade was re-designed with a longer handle and thicker blade and joined the Zeroll product line to rave reviews.
