On Friday, March 10, 2017 the Village of Winnetka celebrated Graeter’s Ice Cream grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Graeter’s Ice Cream, family owned craft ice cream maker since 1870, produces craft ice cream using French Pots, a small batch, artisanal method of production dating back over a century. Famous for their signature chocolate chips, the Cincinnati-based company remains family owned and operated and continues to handcraft ice cream 2½ gallons at a time. Today, Graeter’s has more than 55 retail stores and looks forward to sharing a full menu of ice cream flavors, sundaes, milkshakes, old-fashioned sodas and candy in Winnetka.
“We are very excited to start scooping ice cream in Winnetka,” shares Chip Graeter, fourth-generation owner of Graeter’s Ice Cream. “We hope Graeter’s can become a destination in the community where families and friends will want to gather to celebrate and create lasting memories.”
“It is a true pleasure to welcome Graeter’s Ice Cream into Winnetka,” said Village Manager Robert Bahan. “This family owned and operated company is a perfect fit in Hubbard Woods, and we look forward to enjoying their delicious ice cream for generations to come.”
The address of the Winnetka location is 940 Green Bay Road, located across from Hubbard Woods Park. Spring hours of operation are 11 A.M. to 10 P.M. Sunday thru Friday and 11 A.M. to 11 P.M. Friday and Saturday.
