Bruster’s Real Ice Cream Opens in Garden Grove, Calif.

PITTSBURGH – There is a new scoop in Garden Grove, California. Bruster’s Real Ice Cream opened Friday, April 28. The premium frozen treat shop is located at 12879 Harbor Blvd. in the Harbor Town and Country Shopping Center, north of Garden Grove Blvd.

Bruster’s Ice Cream is made the old-fashioned way from ingredients that are slow kettle processed and designed specifically to create the Bruster’s flavor. It all starts with a proprietary home-style mix, delivered fresh from Bruster’s dairy to each store, where small artisan batches are made on site daily by Certified Ice Cream Makers. The prestigious national Consumer Picks survey has ranked Bruster’s a top-10 limited service restaurant five years running.

The newest Bruster’s is locally owned and operated by Leslie and William Oliver. Their teenage son, Ethan, discovered Bruster’s and insisted his parents visit.

The Olivers had been looking at other franchise opportunities for a few years. “Bruster’s is an East Coast favorite expanding to California,” said Leslie Oliver. “The product is outstanding, and the people at Bruster’s home office have been so supportive.”

This is the fourth Bruster’s to open in Southern California.

At least 24 ice cream flavors are always ready to be enjoyed in crunchy, handmade waffle cones, sundaes, candy-filled blasts and thick milkshakes. Freezes, Italian ices, sherbets, sorbets and frozen yogurt, as well as fat-free and no-sugar-added treats, are also available. Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry are always on hand, along with seasonal and crowd favorites. Guests can even request their favorite flavor be made for them.

Cakes and pies are offered for every occasion, along with pints, quarts and half gallons. Catering services will make events truly special.

The Garden Grove location also will offer Bruster’s legendary free doggie sundaes for four-legged friends who bring their owners and free baby cones for children under 40-inches tall.

The Olivers are excited to introduce Bruster’s Real Ice Cream to Garden Grove and to get involved in the community. They already sponsor the Garden Grove Pony League. A Grand Opening Celebration is being planned for the near future.

Bruster’s Garden Grove is located on Harbor Blvd. between the Great Wolf Lodge and Garden Grove Blvd. The shop is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Connect at or @BrustersGardenGrove / Enterprise SEO
