Graeter’s New Scoop

It’s official – Graeter’s Ice Cream has scooped up the last remaining franchise stores in Kentucky as well as Indiana. 

In the first time in three decades, all of Graeter’s Ice Cream parlors will be family-owned. Changes? Nope. Everything remains the same, only the warm fuzzy feeling of the Graeter’s family atmosphere will now fill the air. 

Graeter’s has been serving craft, artisanal ice cream since 1870 and has been a Greater Cincinnati favorite since. The true magic behind the making of this creamy perfection is the French Pot process, making it different than any other ice cream. With more than 50 retail stores, and taking over the frozen treat section in more than 6,000 grocery stores, Graeter’s never ceases to amaze us. 

Yes, they are famous for the massive chunks in their signature chip flavors, but their decadent fall flavors are also quite irresistible. For more information, visit
