Ritter's Frozen Custard

Nominated for: BEST Ice Cream Shop

Multiple locations (See Map)

In 1919, a Coney Island ice cream vendor adopted the French recipe, but marketed it as "Frozen Custard" (because of the egg content). The name stuck in this country, and Frozen Custard is now a specialty ice cream subcategory recognized by the US Food and Drug Administration.

After months spent developing their own frozen custard recipe, John and Bonny opened the first Ritter's Frozen Custard shoppe in Franklin, Indiana. That was in 1989. Today, Ritter's Frozen Custard Shoppes are found in more and more Midwestern cities, and are even located as far away as Texas and Florida.
