Thank you for your interest in owning a Leatherby’s location. A number of years ago, the Leatherby family formed a franchise company that opened nearly 30 creamery franchises in six states. Subsequently, the Leatherbys sold the franchise company and no longer had any connection to these locations. Today only one other franchise location still exists in Taylorsville, Utah. The Leatherby family still OWNS and OPERATES three stores in the Sacramento area (Arden Way, Citrus Heights and in Elk Grove). While the Leatherby family does plan to continue to nurture and grow their business, presently they do not plan to expand via franchising. 

We are proud to support our local communities, organizations, groups and non-profits with several fundraising opportunities. Yet we recognize that each organization is unique.  We want to speak to you directly, so please follow this link for more information: Fundraising

Over the years, the owners of Leatherby’s have spoken to many different organizations, groups and classes about a variety of topics: small business economics, restaurant management, grass roots marketing, motivation, business ethics and even about “faith” in business. Please send us a message at for more information.

At Leatherby's we make our ice cream, sauces, whip cream and many food items FRESH DAILY in our creamery!

YES! We really make our products in our creameries! When you visit, feel free to sit back, relax and watch our ice cream makers work in their kitchens as they churn out gallons upon gallons of ice cream every day. If you're lucky, you might catch the aroma of our homemade hot fudge or caramel as it boils in our enormous candy kettles. Our sundae creations are topped with fresh chopped almonds and fresh whip cream... which is actually made daily out of rich premium cream! You will never, ever, ever find canned whip cream or sauces in our creamery. That's a guarantee!
