Graeter’s was founded by Louis C. Graeter in 1870 in Cincinnati, where it is still headquartered today.
Known nationally for its famous French Pot ice cream, Graeter’s is the oldest continuously family-owned ice cream maker in the country. Each French Pot produces two and a half gallons of ice cream every 20 minutes.
All of Graeter’s ice creams start with the same basic mixture of fresh cream, milk, egg custard and sugar, prepared daily from an old family recipe. The founder’s great grandsons still faithfully use the finest ingredients, trusted recipes and original methods of production today.
We're not the only ones who love them!
