WEST LOOP— The long-awaited Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams officially arrived in the West Loop, bringing with it its unique ice cream flavors and aroma of freshly-made waffle cones.
The Ohio-based company known for its creative flavors opened its newest outpost at 908 W. Randolph St. Thursday afternoon.
Along with popular offerings like brambleberry crisp and frosé sorbet, the two-story shop is offering limited-time flavors including lemon and blueberry parfait, Savannah buttermint and chocolate bunny.
The new location offers guests plenty of space to enjoy their scoops of Jeni’s ice cream on the first and second floor.
Jeni’s first Chicago location opened in September 2013 at 3404 N. Southport Ave. in Lakeview. The chain has since opened locations in Wrigleyville, Wicker Park, Lincoln Park and Old Town.
Jeni Britton Bauer opened her first Jeni’s in Columbus, Ohio in 2002, and has grown the chain to 34 locations across the country.
The new West Loop Jeni’s is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.
