About Bruster’s

Since Bruster’s beginnings in 1989, our commitment to freshness hasn’t changed a bit. Bruce Reed, the “Bruce” in Bruster’s, has always been passionate about going to great lengths to deliver premium quality.

Bruster’s Real Ice Cream is made the old-fashioned way, with slow kettle processing designed specifically to create the Bruster’s flavor, starting with a proprietary homestyle mix delivered fresh from its dairy to each store. It’s a process that simply makes Bruster’s A Scoop Above The Rest.

Our large variety of premium flavors and artisan desserts are made right in the store where they are served, including crunchy handmade waffle cones, customized sundaes, candy-filled blasts and thick milkshakes. Bruster’s also offers customized cakes and pies in your favorite flavor for every occasion.

There are nearly 200 independently owned locations in 20 states, Guyana and South Korea.
