An open letter to Jeni’s


I have grown up in Columbus and I have family in L.A., the Southwest, and New England. I spent years working in D.C. and I have opened stores around the East Coast, Midwest, and Southern U.S. Throughout my travel, I have developed an acute taste for the divergent.

I search for highly recommended (and sometimes very out of the way) restaurants, shops, museums, bars, and coffee houses. What I have found to be the hallmarks of their success has been ownership of purpose – an open embrace of who they are and why they are different.

Jeniʼs Splendid Ice Cream fills me with pride. I add it to any curated list of essential Columbus experiences. Despite Queen City Cayenne leaving the daily scoop menu, I have found new signature and seasonal favorites that make my face happy.

I am passionate about flavor. My insatiable sweet tooth often finds itself searching for new tastes. Jeniʼs never disappoints. I am excited to be a part of this Splendid community.

I am impressed beyond measure for the way that Jeni’s handled the listeria discovery. This type of leadership is rare and special. Read more about the recall and mitigation of the issues in this transparent communication posted by Jeni’s leadership regarding the matter. Recall – Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

When Jeni’s reopens soon, I will be one of the first in line. Spoon ready, face happy.
