You don’t need a private chef or reservations at an exclusive restaurant to eat like a star. In fact, Cincinnati’s Graeter’s Ice Cream franchises gives you the opportunity to enjoy a celebrity favourite without leaving home.
It’s no coincidence that New York and Los Angeles are two of the company‘s largest markets outside of Cincinnati.
George Clooney, Nick Lachey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ashley Judd, David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey are just a few of the many celebrities who have counted Graeter’s Ice Cream as one of their favourite guilty pleasures. In fact, Oprah Winfrey has said on her television show, “this is the best ice cream I’ve ever tasted,” referring to Graeter’s Butter Pecan — her favourite flavour.
Graeter’s ice cream franchises isn’t just a favourite among the stars. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan, a fan of Graeter’s Ice Cream, designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day – this year on July 16. He recognized ice cream as a fun, calcium rich food that is enjoyed by a full 90% of the nation’s population. In fact, every living president has tasted Graeter’s Ice Cream. Presidents George W. Bush and George Bush Sr. are also customers.
Even the competition loves Graeter’s Ice Cream. In a recent USA Today poll, the ice cream was picked #1 by Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream. Established in 1870 and family owned ever since, Graeter’s delivers ice cream via Next Day Air to customers throughout the United States.
Graeter’s is a Cincinnati brand icon, with national prestige, that has become synonymous with indulgent taste experiences since 1870. Known nationally for its famous French Pot ice cream, Graeter’s is one of the oldest continuously family-owned ice cream makers in the country. The founder’s grandchildren and great grandsons still faithfully use the finest quality ingredients, trusted recipes and methods of production in the Cincinnati plant. Graeter’s has 11 stores in Cincinnati and 24 regional franchise stores throughout Ohio and Kentucky.
