From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bruster's Ice Cream is a chain of ice cream parlors, whose ice cream and frozen yogurt is made from a pre-made mix at each individual store. Their primary operating region is in most states east of the Mississippi River, and more specifically in western Pennsylvania, where the chain is based.


Bruce Reed got his start with the ice cream business in the 1950s, when, as a kid, he helped out his parents at their diner, Jerry's Curb Service, in Bridgewater, Pennsylvania, a small town located 27 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. It was then from his dad that Reed would learn the secrets to the restaurant business.

In 1989, Reed decided to open an ice-cream shop right next door to Jerry's, which by this point he now operated himself. The chain has rapidly expanded since, and is now located in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. The chain is especially popular in its home Pittsburgh market, where many Pittsburghers consider it the best tasting ice cream in the region. Bruster's remains headquartered in Bridgewater.

Some Bruster's have also partnered with Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs. The menu consists of all beef hot dogs, corn dog nuggets, chicken tenders, crinkle cut fries and Nathan's lemonade.
