Emack and Bolio's is a chain of ice cream stores based in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. The chain was founded by Robert Rook, a lawyer and self-declared hippie who has worked closely with the homeless, Vietnam war protesters, civil and gay rights advocates, and numerous rock bands such as Aerosmith, U2, Boston, The Cars, and James Brown. Emack and Bolio's was founded in 1975, three years before Ben and Jerry's used the concept of a hippie ice cream store. There are now a few stores in other states, including New York, Florida, and Illinois New Jersey, and Massachusetts. The first international locations opened in Bangkok, Thailand in 2014 and also in Abu Dhabi. A shop in Xian, China and Hong Kong opened in 2015. The mascot is now a red-eyed moose whose name is Stoney.
