Louis and Regina Graeter started making vanilla ice cream in a metal bucket on the streets of Cincinnati after the Civil War.
Today, four generations later, Graeter's is churning out 1.3 million gallons of ice cream a year; selling pints in 6,000 grocery stores nationwide and 55 scoops shops across nine states.
If Graeter's isn't So Cincinnati, then what is? In a rare interview, Graeter's President and CEO Rich Graeter joined That's So Cincinnati to talk about:
- His generation's contribution to the family business
- The "legacy of stubbornness"
- The company's surging growth the past three years
- What state might be the next to get a Graeter's scoop shop
- Grooming the next generation to take over
