I don't know if many people have come to experience the delight that Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams is, but if you find yourself near a location go! Saunter into the cheery, subway tiled dessert bar and gaze and the perfectly drafted Chalkboard menu. Jeni's has taken the ice cream parlor experience, and not to mention the ice cream itself, to a whole new level. It is a shop designed to bring people together to experience creativity and friendship. Jeni Britton Bauer is the master chef behind the cold creations and she has cultivated a splendid company. Starting out in the Buckeye State of Ohio, Jeni has worked for a decade to build her vision and gather others to join her on the road.
All of the ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet is hand made. From local cows and Ugandan coffee beans, natural ingredients join to develop the delicious flavors. Jeni keeps her hands in every part of the operation. Though she has delegated responsibilities to others, she enjoys the creative process whether it be a new flavor or the decor in a new shop. She tells of her journey in this interview with Sweet Paul. Due to her hard work, she can now delight in the success of her efforts and continue to be a master chef.
Jeni's commitment to growing her business brought a shop to the Westside Provisions District in Atlanta. I am so glad I was living in the city when it was running in full swing. On that note, Jeni, Bring a shop to New York City!
