“We’ve had the privilege to experience the anticipation and excitement around new stores as we work through construction, finishing touches and grand openings,” Jim Sahene, Bruster’s CEO, said. “While it’s been a challenging time, we hope the new stores enable loved ones to come together safely and happily.”

“Throughout the past few months we’ve seen customers and stores display incredible resilience,” Sahene continued. “As we move deeper into the summer season, we hope to spend time together – as safe and permitted – to share in special moments. We’re fortunate to be in a business of scooping smiles and will continue to offer that to our local communities.”
