The votes are in! We are proud to have been selected as the 2015 The Munchies: People’s Choice Food Award Winner of most amazing tasting ice cream! And with such dedicated fans, it’s no wonder. They simply can’t get enough and are proud to admit it, with such rants as, “Enjoyed is an understatement” and “I am in LOVE with this flavor. It is so creamy, rich and the cherries are amazing, just like the chocolate chips.”
So how do we do it? Through an unbreakable commitment to stay true to our great great grandmother’s French Pot Process and undying love of only the finest, freshest ingredients. The result? Ice cream that is rich, creamy and packed with flavor. A taste you must try for yourself!
Have you noticed? We’ve recently changed our look. Our new packaging for our classic small-batch handcrafted ice cream is now similar to that of our gelato and lighter “A Little Less Indulgent” ice cream flavors.
Learn more about how the new packaging came about in this article from the Cincinnati Business Courier.

4th-generation owner, Richard Graeter, was spotted in Chicago this week scouting potential new store locations!
Fritz Burgher, of Chicago Business, writes:
Cincinnati-based family ice cream company Graeter's is looking to expand its business to Chicago.
CEO Richard Graeter is coming to Chicago this week to check out four sites that could help establish the ice cream shop in the Chicago market. The company has 40 retail locations in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
By opening shops in Chicago, Mr. Graeter hopes to increase brand awareness and drive more sales for the nearly $40 million-a-year company.
“It's a great Midwestern city,” Mr. Graeter said. “It's been underserved for premium ice cream, and we've had customers from Chicago telling us for years we should open up a location here.”
In total, Mr. Graeter wants to open 10 to 15 new locations around the country. The plan is to focus on one market at a time, open two or three locations and then continue expanding.
Beyond Chicago, he is also considering Nashville, St. Louis, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Charlotte, North Carolina.
