The Isaly’s experience at Your Family Table

We are best known for our “signature” products, Original Chipped Chopped Ham, Original BBQ sauce, and Old Fashioned Whitehouse Cherry Ice Cream.

It was the summer of 1966. I was 16 years old and had my first job working at Isaly's on East Ohio Street in the north side of Pittsburgh. My wage was eighty-five cents an hour less fifteen cents an hour for the uniform. I hoped to be making milkshakes and scooping out skyscraper ice cream cones, but I only cleaned the coolers and mopped the floors. However, I was proud to say "I worked at Isaly's." - Joseph DeRiso Jr.

I LOVE ISALY’S!! It brings back such wonderful memories of my dad and me going to German Village in Columbus, OH and going to the Isaly’s store. My favorite was ice cream and and vanilla phosphate drink. It was a special treat.

My Aunt and Uncle owned an Isaly Dairy Store in Bessemer, Pa. I would stop in after school for my favorite sky scraper ice cream cone. I still have some of my Aunt's aprons, dishes, and the sky scraper ice cream scoop, from the store. Great memories!!!!
