Schwan's Home Delivery Changing Its Name After 70 Years
If you live in the midwest, you know a Schwan's truck. In fact, you've probably enjoyed ice cream or meals from the company at some point. The Schwan's man came to our house every week and not sure about your house, but we sometimes didn't answer the door. We hid behind a couch. No idea why...but I guess it was too hard to open the door and just say "no thank you" at times. #TrueStory
After 70 years, Schwan's is going away. If you missed the big announcement shared on Facebook today, you can read it below:
