WEST LOOP — Is it too soon to start thinking about ice cream shops?

Perhaps, but come this spring, there will be a new shop in the West Loop — Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream.

The Ohio company known for its creative flavors has signed a lease at 900 W. Randolph St., according to Tucker Development, the building’s owner.

Kerigan McNamara, a spokeswoman for Jeni’s, confirmed the shop would be open this spring and more plans would be announced soon.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream will join Toronto-based Kinton Ramen and Independence, an upscale menswear boutique, who have all recently signed leases at the West Loop development that houses Roman-style pizzeria Bonci and Lululemon.
