Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams
Goat Cheese and Cherries, Lemon and Blueberries, Askinosie Chocolate. These are just a couple flavors that magnetized me to begin working for this amazing company. Jeni Britton Bauer, co-founder and owner of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, has put Columbus, Ohio on the map. People now travel to Columbus and happily wait in hour-long lines to have this experience that can not be recreated. Jeni uses local, grass-fed dairy cows and as much fresh, homegrown ingredients as she can get.
Her love for Columbus shows in each of her shops, as they represent the specific neighborhood they are located in.
Every batch is handmade. Every pint is hand-packed.
Jeni surrounds herself with staff made up of artists, writers, photographers, bakers, travelers and world-class experience gatherers. Jeni is slowly working towards making all of her shops completely recyclable, bike-friendly and sustainable.
When I tell people that I have a part-time job in the production kitchen of Jeni's, their eyes light up and an envious smile is almost automatic. I am honored to be a part of this incredible team and continue to look forward to continued success and innovation that Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams brings forth.
