About Pav's Creamery

Bill and Claire Micochero

Pav's Creamery has been making homemade Kustard, Hard Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt and Sorbets in Akron for over 45 years. Founded in Portage Lakes Ohio, Pav’s Creamery was originally built as a Tasty Freeze in the early 1950’s. Mr. Robert Pavlik later purchased the creamery 1969 and decided to change the name over to his childhood nickname, "Pav’s".

Pav's back in 1979

In 1978 Bill and Claire Micochero purchased Pav's from Mr. Pavlik. In 1994, their daughter Michelle purchased the creamery from her parents and to this day it is still own and operated by her.

In 2015, Pav's opened it's second location in Green Ohio. Unlike it's Portage Lakes location, Pav's in Green is opened 365 days a year and is equipped with interior seating. Pav's Creamery in Green also features a savory menu along side of it's very popular "Adult Shake" themed menu.
