In 1957, Bill Braum's purchased his family's ice cream processing the business based in Emporia, Kansas, as well as its has "Peter Pan" retail ice cream chain; ten years later, the Peter Pan stores was sold, under the condition that the Braum's family not sell ice cream in the Kansas for ten years.
Having kept the family dairy herd and ice cream cake processing business, Braum's and his wife Mary started the Braum's chain in 1968, opening 24 stores in Oklahoma during the first year. Braums brought products from its Emporia’s headquarters to Oklahoma for the first few years, later on opening facilities in Oklahoma and moving the herd there in 1975.
