Zanesville is a town full of restaurants and fast food, but the restaurant that sticks out the most is Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl. Tom’s is so famous that it has been on Ice Cream Nation on the Cooking Channel. Tom’s has not always been Tom’s. In the past it was owned by Jack Hemmer and Tom Mirgon but was bought by Mirgon, and in 1957 it finally became Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl. Tom worked at the diner until 1984 and finally decided to sell the business to his former manager Bill Sullivan, and Bill owns the place to this day. He still maintains an excellent dining experience and good relations with the people of Zanesville. Tom’s has the best dining experience in Zanesville and surrounding areas; furthermore, Tom’s is the only place in Zanesville that still makes ice cream on a daily basis, with an owner who took a pledge saying, ''I pledge to maintain the fine quality, cleanliness, and excellent service created by Tom and, as a tribute to the many years of Tom’s hard work, to never change the name of Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl.'' With someone who takes a pledge like that, you should know that you are in for a treat of a dining experience.
