In 2022, Schwan’s Home Delivery changed it's name to Yelloh.

"Since the beginning, our can-do attitude coupled with a desire to meet people where they’re at is what has made our company so special. As Yelloh, we will continue to operate as the same solutions-focused food delivery service that keeps our customers’ freezers stocked and their families happily fed," Yelloh Exectuive Chairman Paul Schwan stated.

The new name pays "homage to 70-year history of personal connections in communities around the country and the brand’s iconic yellow delivery vehicles," according to company officials.

I vividly remember my excitement when a Schwan's truck would come to my childhood home in the Hudson Valley and my mom would stock on delicious frozen meals, snacks and ice cream. Especially the ice cream!

The classic vanilla nut sundae cones were my favorite.
