About Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Jeni Britton Bauer opened Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams in 2002 in Columbus, Ohio's historic North Market, and now with her small team operates 15 shops from Chicago to Atlanta. Pints and ice cream sandwiches are also available at more than 900 US groceries, as well as online through Jeni's home-shipping business.

Today, Jeni and her hands-on crew make every batch of ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt in their kitchens in Columbus, OH. To build everything from the ground up, they use cream from grass-grazed Ohio cows, whole fruits, vegetables, and herbs from nearby farms, as well as carefully sourced ingredients from around the world, including rare, fair-trade vanilla and bean-to-bar direct trade chocolate. Signature Flavors, such as Salty Caramel and Pistachio & Honey, anchor a menu that also includes limited-edition, quarterly flavor collections inspired by the seasons, pop culture, culinary history, and world trends.

We have always lived the life of a B Corp.  It just took us some time to get it on paper. We are proud to now officially be a part of the family.  

The Change We Seek® 

Being a certified B-corp allows Jeni’s to be a company that is not just about marketing one big idea, but a living, breathing company of real people who believe in pushing forward each day in order to achieve many big ideas and ultimately, to change the world.

We believe in buying directly and paying fairly for our ingredients, in having minimal impact on the environment, and in building and shaping community. 

What makes us a better company?
