Friendly's 347 W Main St, Avon, CT06001 Friendly's was founded in Springfield, Mass. in 1935 by brothers Prestley and Curtis Blake. It offered ice cream…More for 5 cents. It was named Friendly's because they wanted to provide a warm, caring, neighborly service to all who visited. Today, it offers, sandwiches, such as the Turkey Club Supermelt, Tuna Salad Supermelt, and Cheddar Jack Chicken Supermelt, and burgers like Swiss and Mushroom Bacon Burger, BBQ Fronion Burger and, of course, ice cream in more than 25 flavors, and so much more. This location is managed by Mike Remson.
