Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour and Restaurant, an 1890s-themed eatery, was established in Portland, Oregon in 1963. The franchise, best known for giving free sundaes to people celebrating their birthdays, grew and branched out across the United States, but had begun to decline by the late 1970s as the economy became weaker. In response to flagging sales, Farrell's began advertising on television commercials, newspaper ads, and buttons. Yet throughout the 1980s and 1990s the chain had to sell off multiple locations, and after a legal battle over ownership in the late 2000s, the company was forced to restructure its model. Today Farrell's restaurants can be found in only two states but are beloved for their sundaes and joke menus.
