About
Beth Marie’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream is a local landmark in Denton, TX. Original owners, Beth Marie & Dr. Randy Cox, first opened their doors in November, 1998.

It did just that, and became a landmark in the heart of Denton. Beth & Randy decided to pursue other challenges in 2003, and a newly formed partnership purchased the business. In 2009 the ice cream parlor expanded to a second location at Unicorn Lake, by the Cinemark Movie Theater. At about the same time Beth Marie's began expanding into other
