Red Parker's Ice Cream Parlor was a short-lived business that occupied the former gas station on the corner of College Avenue and the Old Greenville Highway in Clemson in 1975 and 1976. It was operated by Jimmy Red Parker, Clemson's 19th head football coach, but closed after he was fired by the university in 1976 following a 3-6-2 season.

The building, designed by Rudolph E. Lee, had architecture that matched that of Sloan's Store (now TD's). It was razed in the 1990s during improvements to the intersection upon which it sat.
