A Franchise Above the Rest -- Bruster's® Real Ice Cream
Since 1989, Bruster's® has become one of the country's favorite frozen treat chains. And for the last five years, we've been ranked as a top-10 limited service restaurant by the prestigious Consumer Picks national survey. You'll find over 200 independently owned Bruster's® locations in 20 states, Guyana and South Korea -- and more are springing up every single day.
Discover the difference. Always handmade. Always fresh.
Bruster's® is made the old-fashioned way, with ingredients that are slow kettle processed and designed specifically to create our signature flavor. It all starts with our proprietary home-style mix, delivered fresh from our dairy to each store, where small artisan batches of ice creams, yogurts, ices and sorbets are made daily by our Certified Ice Cream Makers.
