  1. Jeni’s Splendid Ice creams - Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams was founded in 2002 by James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Jeni Britton Bauer. Britton Bauer’s ahead-of-the-trend vision—using whole ingredients and dairy from grass-pastured cows, rather than synthetic flavorings and commodity ice cream mix—coupled with inspired flavors, sparked the artisan ice cream movement more than a decade before it would become a top food trend. Today, Jeni’s is a certified B Corporation with 33 scoop shops, an online shop at, and distribution in top groceries across the country.
  2. Salt and Straw- For years, Kim Malek was dreaming about the creation of a community gathering place. One where you could run into neighbors, spend time with family, or treat yourself. A great neighborhood place. The answer was clearly an ice cream shop.
  3. Van Leeuwen Ice Cream -Van Leeuwen Ice Cream in a yellow truck on the streets of NYC in 2008 with a mission to make good ice cream that makes you feel good. Nowadays, people can spend so much time on what’s “healthy” they don’t stop to consider what’s healthy. As far as we’re concerned, happiness is healthiness.
  4. Ample Hills Creamery - Every day, we wake up hoping that today will be the day we make the best ice cream ever. We aren’t afraid to think outside of the box, get creative or make a few mistakes along the way. It’s this mindset that has empowered us to imagine the whimsical flavors that we’re known for! They make all of their ice cream from start to finish. They have locations in California, New Jersey and New York.
  5. After’s Ice Cream – With 9 locations in California, Afters is more than just ice cream. It's a lifestyle. Our handcrafted ice cream and signature flavors are our foundation that keeps our brand apart from the rest. Less talk, more ice cream.
