Is Graeter's Coming to Chicago?

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.

Graeter’s Gelato Flavor Scores Big With The Ice Cream Informant

Our new handcrafted gelato flavors are getting rave reviews! Recently, Bob of the Ice Cream Informant reviewed our Caramel Truffle Gelato and gave it an “A” rating in his post.

Bob wrote that the overall taste for the base “is very unique and very good for a gelato” with an “overall richness/creaminess [that] shines for a caramel flavor”. What probably put him over the top though was the truffles. “The truffles are as expected; absolutely divine in taste, melt in your mouth, and are packed with a great chocolate taste. If you know Graeter's, they do not short change you when it comes to mix-ins or the size of the mix-ins. The truffles are complete truffles, not shavings or halved truffles, but nearly you are getting one or two truffles in every single spoonful you take from the pint.”
