In the spring of 1999, while students at Iowa State University, founders Thomas (T.J.) Paskach and William (Will) Schroeder invented a new way to flash-freeze ice cream using liquid nitrogen. The “mad scientists” soon discovered their breakthrough invention made better homemade ice cream than they had ever had before.  A year later the company was formed, a patent was pending, and a full-scale, computer-controlled prototype was ready for testing at the 2000 Iowa State Fair.
